Lenten Devotion

He (Jesus) said to them, "Behold, when you have entered
the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you.
 Follow him into the house that he enters ..." (Luke 22:10).

Read Luke 22:8-10.

This momentous day begins with a meal which will be
remembered and rehearsed until the day Jesus returns. It
will be Jesus' last Passover, a beautiful legacy He will leave
for His church. So He sends two disciples to prepare the
meal. Their first task will be to secure a space large enough
to accommodate Jesus, the 12 followers He called, and any
others who are with them.

He instructs Peter and John to follow the man carrying a jar
of water. Maybe this sounds like a rather odd direction. We
might expect them to see a large number of men carrying
jars of water. But these two disciples know women normally
carried the water. It is extremely unusual to see a man
carrying one, so he will be really easy to spot.

But even so, Jesus has to know exactly when that one male
servant will be at that place, and coordinate His disciples'
arrival so they will be passing into the city gates exactly
when he walks by. For the Son of God, no detail is too small
as He makes sure everything will be on hand for His disciples
to complete the preparations for this great feast.

In the same way no detail is too small as Jesus coordinates
all the events in your life to best serve His loving purpose for
you. Don't ignore those little details-the seemingly unimportant
situations or people He brings near. Those are opportunities to
experience His loving care, and to share the love of Christ in
your attitude, your humility and kindness, your words and your


Lord Jesus, thank You for taking note of every detail of my life.
Give me confidence that You will guide all things for my eternal
good. Amen.
