Mark 14:12-21; Matthew 26:17-25; Luke 22:7-14, 21-30; John 13:1-30
The Passover Feast was approaching and the disciples wanted to prepare for what we now know as the Last Supper. Jesus gave specific instructions and his disciples set out to follow them.
Scripture records a powerful, reassuring verse in Mark 14:16 and again in Luke 22:13. When the disciples got to Jerusalem, they “found things just as Jesus had told them.” That really spoke to me today.
I think of the many things Jesus said while in His earthly body. Things like:
Come to me, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28)
If you seek God’s kingdom, He will give you everything you need. (Matthew 6:33)
I am with you always. (Matthew 28:20)
I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart. (John 14:27)
Whoever comes to me I will never drive away. (John 6:37)
The one who loves me will be loved by the Father. )John 14:21)
I have called you friends. (John 15:15)
If I go to prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me. (John 14:3)
He tells us complete joy is in those who keep His commands. (John 15:9-11)
Whoever believes in Jesus has eternal life. (John 3:16)
There are so many precious promises Jesus made. And we can be assured that when we look into them, when we believe, we will find things just as Jesus said.
