“Then he told them, “I have longed with passion and desire to eat this Passover lamb with you before I endure my sufferings.” (Luke 22:15, TPT)
I love the fire in His eyes for us! It is heart-stirring! Hear Jesus’ words to His disciples, “I have longed with passion and desire to eat this Passover lamb with you.” The longing denotes ‘violent movement.’ It refers to that which is moved or moves. Like water that comes to a boil or rushes down a mountain, Jesus describes His heart for His disciples.
Picture the face of Jesus as you prepare to receive communion today. Do you see the passion and desire that He has for you? Do you see His willingness to lay down His life for you?
The heart of Jesus moves for these men who were with Him. Men like Peter, Judas, John the beloved, and you and I! He knew they were weak, frail, failing men, but He loved them to the full extent.
This is how He continues to love us, with a passion that moves Him. I come to Him in weakness, He comes to me in strength! I give Him my sin, He gives me His righteousness. I come with my head bowed, and He comes as the lifter of my head.
Don’t miss the intensity of how Jesus moved for you! There were no second thoughts, no reconsiderations. He loves us!
