Joh 13:9-10 KJV Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also [my] hands and [my] head. 10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash [his] feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

Joh 15:3 AMP You are cleansed and pruned already, because of the word which I have given you [the teachings I have discussed with you].

Joh 13:11-12 KJV For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean. 12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?

Jesus told Peter in John 13:7 that Peter did not know what He Jesus was doing. Peter certainly knew that Jesus was washing his feet, what Peter did not know was that Jesus was washing the influence of the world from the feet of the disciples and drying their feet with a towel that represented their righteousness before God. Jesus did what He did so we would know how to keep from being the Devil’s food.

Joh 13:15 KJV For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.

Jesus was not telling you that you should have literal foot washing ceremonies in the Church, but that you should be a constant reminder to others that they have been washed in the Blood of Jesus through the washing of the Water of the Word.

Rev 1:5-6 KJV And from Jesus Christ, [who is] the faithful witness, [and] the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him [be] glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Col 3:16 KJV Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

In John 3:10 Jesus says that all of the disciples are clean except Judas who would betray Him. The disciples had been washed in the water of word as Jesus taught them.

Eph 5:26 AMP So that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word,

Eph 5:27 AMP That He might present the church to Himself in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such things [that she might be holy and faultless].

Jesus dried the feet of the disciples with a clean linen cloth which represented the righteousness of God given to you by the Grace of God. Further that because of Jesus we have been made righteous and free from condemnation.

Rev 19:8 KJV And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

Rom 8:1 ASV There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus.
