John 13:15 says, “For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you”.
In my opinion, Jesus washing the feet of His disciples was an effective way of demonstrating His character of humility and love to them in a practical sense through which they could follow. Effective Christian leadership is about experiencing the character of Christ in our lives and transforming this into the most exemplary lessons for someone else to follow. In other words we need to be a living example of Christ.
