"And on the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they sacrificed the Passover lamb, his disciples said to him, 'Where will you have us go and prepare for you to eat the Passover?'
And he sent two of his disciples, and said to them, 'Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you; follow him, and wherever he enters, say to the householder, 'The Teacher says, Where is my guest room, where I am to eat the Passover with my disciples?' And he will show you a large upper room furnished and ready; there prepare for us.
And the disciples set out and went to the city, and found it as he had told them; and they prepared the Passover."
Mark 14: 12-16
This is the week Christ will die. To know him is risky. Peter will deny knowing him in a little while. He has nowhere to go and he asks for a room.
Who will give him room?
There is a wonderful measure of love that Jesus inspires in human hearts. Someone says 'I will give you a room. Come.' He has something to lose. He has a room that will accomodate a ritual meal for 13 people.
The jar of water is a sign. Have Christ and this man communicated already? Or does Christ just know?
Have you given him room to come in. Are you open? Are you will to risk knowing Him?
The man was open to love and all it had to offer despite the risk. And this is all we know about him. That he risked knowing Christ by providing a place for the disciples to celebrate the Last Supper.
Are you open to Christ? Have you given him room in your heart, mind, and body? Have you calculated the risk?
Give him room.
