November 03, 2018: SOAP #3257:   Job 25; Mark 13-14

Scripture:  Mark (NIV) 14:14 Say to the owner of the house he enters, 'The Teacher asks: Where is my guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?' 15 He will show you a large upper room, furnished and ready. Make preparations for us there.”

Observation:   Jesus was sending two disciples into Jerusalem to prepare for the Passover supper, The Last Supper.   Jesus did not say, 'Ask the owner of the house if we can borrow his guest room.'   He told his disciples to ask, 'Where is MY guest room?'

Surely there is some history to that question.   Someday in heaven, someone will remember to ask, 'Jesus, what made you so certain that the owner would not take offence when you claimed that his guest room was yours?   How did you know that he would be so agreeable?'

Application: I have prayed, I have sung, I have told others that all I have belongs to the LORD!   So, when He says, 'Let this person use my room   or, Use my car to take   or, Give some money from my savings account to'   There should be no question and no hesitation.   I should respond like the owner of the house above.

Prayer:   Lord, after all you have done for me, how can I refuse to do as you desire with what already belongs to you!  Amen
