DAILY READINGS: Joshua 14:1-15:63; Isaiah 10:5-34; 1 Thess. 1:1-2:12

And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer. Luke 22:15

She came to the morning service at our assembly and lay on a bed for the duration of the meeting due to a back injury. If I were in her position, would I stay home or would I still come to meet the Lord? Other versions state “earnestly desired” and “heartily desired.” If the Lord so desired to meet with His followers in the upper room before He went to the cross, how much do we desire to meet with Him to show our appreciation for what He has done for us? —Janet Fleming

I take the bread and wine today
And hear my Saviour gently say,
“Remember Me, I died for you,
Is this too much for you to do?” —Janet Fleming
