"Lord, not my feet only..."

The ordinance of the washing of the feet, still done today by the apostles. In the Savior's day, feet were often dirty, soiled from dirt roads.  The story follows:

"He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head." (John 13:3-9 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/john/13.3-9 )

do we invite the Savior in, for he has served us already. He has washed us clean if we will but come to him. He is our Savior and Redeemer, and if he were here, he would serve others humbly, as he did on earth.
