Jesus made arrangements for the last supper that he would have with his disciples on the eve of his crucifixion. This supper would be part of the Passover celebration. Passover commemorated the final plague on Egypt when the death angel passed over the land and the first born of the Egyptians died and the Israelites were spared because of the blood of the lamb smeared on their doorpost (Exodus 12).
Jesus instructed Peter and John to make preparations for the Passover”(Luke 22:8). He told them that as they entered the city of Jerusalem they would meet a man carrying a jar of water. In a city where women usually carried the water, it would not be hard to spot a man doing the same. Jesus explained that they were to follow the man to the house that he entered and speak to the owner about the guest room that He had arranged.
Peter and John did as Jesus had instructed them and found everything to be exactly as Jesus had said. In that upper room that Jesus had previously arranged, the two disciples prepared for the meal and set the table.
On this occasion as on all others, the disciples found things to be exactly as Jesus had told them. There is nothing strange at all about that fact. Jesus who is truth always spoke truth. Never once did Jesus mislead his disciples. Never once did they ever have reason to doubt Him.
In a world filled with lies, conspiracy theories and deception isn’t it refreshing to know that there is one in whom we can trust – JESUS CHRIST. He who is truth will never lead you down the wrong road. He will never deceive you. You can stake your life on his Word. As the Psalmist said, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path” (Psalm 119:105).
As we worship, read the Bible, pray and listen to our Lord speak to us, let us give Him our undivided attention and commit ourselves to TRUST AND OBEY.
Trust and obey
for there’s no other way
to be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.
In His Love,
