HOLY THURSDAY, CHRISM, LAST SUPPER
“….Jesus knew that his hour had come to pass from this world to the Father. He loved his own in the world and he loved them to the end. .. So, during supper, fully aware that the Father had put everything into his power…”
It is said that, “blind obedience” is far better than “informed obedience.” Blind obedience takes on the leap of faith as there are no ways by which one can determine the possibilities of what lies ahead. However, informed obedience lead one to walk in faith as the possibilities of the future are laid in front of the person.
Jesus, fully aware that his hour is coming, embraced with willingness and love the Father’s will and its consequences. He love the Father dearly and He loved his own in the world and he loved them to the end.
As we follow Christ in his last twenty-six hours, may we spend time with him, accompanying him in his moments of distress, grief, sorrow, struggle, surrender and death.
Listen as Jesus confides to you “My soul is deeply grieved, to the point of death; remain here and keep watch with Me.”
Can you spend an hour with him?
