Mark 14:12-16
12 Now on the first day of the feast of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover lamb is sacrificed, Jesus’ disciples said to him, “Where do you want us to prepare for you to eat the Passover?” 13 He sent two of his disciples and told them, “Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him. 14 Wherever he enters, tell the owner of the house, ‘The Teacher says, “Where is my guest room where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?”’ 15 He will show you a large room upstairs, furnished and ready. Make preparations for us there.” 16 So the disciples left, went into the city, and found things just as he had told them, and they prepared the Passover.

    • The Disciples Had To Be Open To Follow
    • The Owner Had To Be Open To Sharing
    • Jesus Had To Be Right About The Plan
  • Lessons From The Disciples
    • It’s Going To Feel Random
      • Guy carrying water jar, was their only one guy
      • It would feel so random going up to the owner of the house
    • But Trust The Plan
      • They could have eaten anywhere but God had somewhere in mind
      • They didn’t know the destination until they arrived
      • God will always get you to the right place
      • “They Found It Just Like He Said”
      • If we follow, others will furnish
    • Lessons From The Owner
      • Listen To The Voice that says, “Get It Ready”
        • God was preparing this family 6 months before we arrived
        • Had they been through what they had been through, they would not have hosted us
        • God knew we were going. God prepared a house
        • What felt random, was just God getting thing ready
      • Others Are Going To Step Into What We Have Prepared
        • Because the owner of the house was open, the Lord stepped into what they had prepared (That’s Communion)
        • Because the owner of the house was open, others stepped into what he prepared (That’s Connection/ Fellowship)
      • Our Lives Are Better When We Bless
        • The Lord Can Broadcast His Message When We Bless
    • Know Your Role
      • God’s plan requires a divine partnership among disciples
      • One had to follow
      • One had to furnish
      • But both had to believe
