Wesley's Notes for John 13:10

People's Bible Notes for John 13:10


Joh 13:10 He that is washed needeth not except to wash [his] feet. We must seek the spiritual meaning. He who is once cleansed by the blood of Christ only needs, after this, to come to Christ for partial cleansing; for the forgiveness of the special sins that make him unclean.

Discussion for John 13:10

  • I believe as Christ cleansed the feet of the disciples we should endeavor to cleanse each other with prayer and encouragement, and conversations filled with Love
  • Bob fishback for verse 10
    This a wonderful validation of the imputed righteousness of God to all who believe. Daily sins only affect fellowship, not salvation. David prayed :Restore unto me the JOY of thy salvation...not restore unto me my salvation.
