Quotations from the writings of Ellen G. White with the phrase . . .

                               Christ expressed his love for this disciples

So Christ expressed His love for His disciples. Their selfish spirit filled Him with sorrow, but He entered into no controversy with them regarding their difficulty. Instead He gave them an example they would never forget. His love for them was not easily disturbed or quenched. He knew that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He came from God, and went to God. He had a full consciousness of His divinity; but He had laid aside His royal crown and kingly robes, and had taken the form of a servant. One of the last acts of His life on earth was to gird Himself as a servant, and perform a servant's part.  Desire of Ages, page 644.5
 
Another cause of dissension had arisen. At a feast it was customary for a servant to wash the feet of the guests. . . . The pitcher, the basin, and the towel were there, in readiness for the feet washing; but no servant was present, and it was the disciples' part to perform it. . . . Jesus waited for a time to see what they would do. Then He, the divine Teacher, rose from the table. Laying aside the outer garment that would have impeded His movements, He took a towel, and girded Himself. . . . "After that he poureth water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet." . . . So Christ expressed His love for His disciples{SD 157.3}
