I am always so disappointed that another religion that does not believe in Jesus as Lord has a place of worship on a site important to Christians. I often wonder what God thinks and what he will do with that??
It is very easy to make the Lords Supper just another religious activity. So, as I read Luke having taken the Lords Supper yesterday, and read these very scriptures at worship; I tried to think of all the emotions he must have had. I know my mind has trouble concentrating when there is something difficult in front of me. Yet he had to take advantage of each moment to prepare his disciples. Somehow his earthly mind was surely distracted yet His divine mind was on point.
I often forget that the Upper Room was used for Pentecost. This reminds me of the devotional last week where we talked about important places we worship. Two highly critical moments in the Christ movement took place here. Surely the disciples and first Christians held the Upper Room in high regard, pointing to it as a place where God started a wonderful work in many of their lives and in the lives of those who brought them to Christ. Looking at it from my personal point of view, the Upper Room was their Mimosa Lane. (see day 35 of my post)
The Upper Room, maybe it needs a little more attention than we give it, or I give it.
