My Feet Are Dirty – Origen

Jesus, my feet are dirty.

Come even as a slave to me, pour water into your bowl, come and wash my feet.

In asking such a thing I know I am overbold, but I dread what was threatened when you said to me, “If I do not wash your feet I have no fellowship with you.”

Wash my feet then, because I long for your companionship.

 

– Origen 185–254AD
