Anywhere but there

Is there a place you are afraid to go into today?

Uncertainty clouds the path and it is the last place you want to go.

They are waiting with bated breath.

“He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’” So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.” (Matthew 26 v 18-19)

 ‘There’, Jesus points, ‘In the city’.

There in your family.

There in your marriage.

There in your workplace.

There in your church.

There where you live.

There across the oceans.

There in a foreign land.

There where you would rather not be or go.

There, make preparations for the celebration of the sacrificial lamb.

There, get ready for our time of reflecting on surrender and submission to the plan of God for your life and for others.
