Who carries your water?

June 10, 2011

The Life of Jesus; Today Read - Peter & John sent to prepare for Passover; Matthew 26:17-19; Mark  14:12-16; Luke 22:7-13

It was the law for all Jewish people to celebrate the Passover, and Jesus, though He came to deliver us from the law was no different from anyone else.  The disciples were under this law as well.  So they turned to the Master to tell them what to do to prepare.  

LITV: Luke 22:10. And He said to them, Behold, you going into the city, you will meet a man carrying a pitcher of water. Follow him into the house where he goes in.

Now this would be scary to me! I mean, is Jesus just playing game here.  How can he know a man would be carrying a pot of water, that was woman’s work.  This could never happen.  Yet they walked in faith that Jesus knew what He was doing.  They were starting to know when Jesus said something it would come to pass.  So they did it. And just like Jesus said, there everything was and things fell into place.

I need to be more like these men. Walking in faith, knowing that my water carrier will show up at the right time.  I am going through some medical problems at the moment, getting tested for cancer again, Somewhere out there is a man carrying a water pot for me. I will walk in faith for him to be there.

Read for next time:  Fellowship in the upper room; Matthew  26:20; Mark 14:17; Luke 22:14
