Follow on with me as we remember this Holy Weekend of the year… We recall the Last Supper of Our Lord:
The table was prepared.
Footsteps echoed up the narrow stairwell as the disciples followed Jesus, their master, to the Upper Room. “What could be so special about this evening?” they uttered softly.
Dusk had fallen. Each is seated and Jesus begins to pray. He blesses each one, even the one driven by greed.
One who had been a friend and walked by His side. One who would betray the Son of God with a kiss.
The kiss of death that would send Our Lord and Savior to the cross.
Jesus couldn’t stand it anymore. His heart was breaking. It was time for the truth to be known. As He washed the disciples feet, His words brought bewilderment to eleven, conviction to one, “All of you are not clean,” He said…
Then, just before breaking the bread He said,” One of you will betray me.” He spoke no names, only truth.
Then, while dipping the bread, He said,” It is whom I shall give the bread to when I have dipped it.” Now the betrayer knew. No more secrets. No more hiding. The time had come to execute the plan. “What you do, do quickly.” The masters words were fitly spoken; The beginning of the end was at hand.
Yes, the beginning of this Holy Weekend begins today. Have you taken time to be with Jesus? Have you slowed down to take time and remember what He’s done for you? If not, there’s still time. Get alone and spend time with Him so that when Easter Sunday comes, you will rejoice with a joy that can only come from knowing and understanding the great price He paid for you, for me.
