CityLight Pastor Commentary:
“Then he will show you a large, furnished upper room; there make ready” (Lk 22:12). When Jesus’ disciples arrived in Jerusalem, a room was already prepared for them to share the Passover meal. God had communicated instructions to the master of that house to make ready for Jesus Christ. In other words, Jesus’ disciples weren’t the only ones hearing from God; rather He was making Himself known all over the city so that adequate preparations could be made for His Son. When you pray, ask God to speak to you. When you pray for others, ask God to speak to them. The fact that God can make Himself real to anyone He wants does not excuse us from our responsibility to preach the Gospel; however, we must realize that He can speak to anyone! Let’s pray for genuine encounters with the love of God for everyone in our lives.
Father, I have friends and family members who don’t believe in You yet. Give me the opportunity to preach the Gospel to them; when it comes up, help me to take it. Make Yourself real to them in Jesus’ Name!
