The book called Luke in the Bible, was written by a Gentile believer named Luke, who was a close associate of the Apostle Paul. He set out to carefully investigate the truth concerning Jesus Christ, using the eyewitness accounts of those who were with and knew Jesus and His ministry. His intent in writing this Gospel was so that his readers would know the truth regarding Jesus and what they have been taught concerning Him. It is our hope in studying this Gospel, that we too would better understand the truth concerning Jesus, so that we may better know Him and make Him known to others.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23:5-6) And they left and found everything just as He had told them; and they prepared the Passover. (Luke 22:13) The above verse from Luke 22 is at the end of the Scripture passage that we look at in this Sunday's worship service message. What a great reminder of Jesus' preparation and provisions for His disciples in celebrating His last Passover meal together with them. What a great comfort also to know of His preparation and provisions for our daily lives, and even for eternity! May we remember to cast our every care upon Him because He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7).
