Scripture: Luke 22:35
Luke 22:35 says, “And He said to them, ‘When I sent you without money bag, knapsack, and sandals, did you lack anything?’ So they said, ‘Nothing.’” Jesus is referring specifically to the initial sending of the twelve and of the seventy. They were sent out to be Priests. They were sent out to turn the other cheek. They were sent out to witness but they also were sent out to declare if you are not going to receive the Word here is the price you are going to pay. It will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah than for you! Jesus reminded them of the initial sending and how God took care of them all the way through. Jesus knew and He reminded them. And they said yes. You took care of us. We needed nothing. And they had to invoke God’s Biblical curse. They probably ticked off a few people and God still provided for them. The Lord is reminding them, look when I sent you out before and you were not received and you had to invoke the Biblical curse ,did I not still provide! The answer is a resounding yes! So let us take courage and realize the twelve and the seventy had to do it and God took care of them. Will He not take care of us! He has not changed! He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
