He said to them, “When I sent you out without a purse, bag, or sandals, did you lack anything?” They said, “No, not a thing.” Luke 22:35

In this verse, Jesus is saying that even though the disciples had nothing, they had all they needed. For the disciples, this might have meant they lacked proper accommodations for a journey or did not have provisions such as food or money to buy things when the journey started. But even though the disciples lacked these things, they still had their trust in Jesus. They also had friendly accommodations and were provided food, money if needed and warmth.

In our lives, we sometimes go without having proper accommodations, money, or provisions to feel comfortable. But, if you put your faith in Jesus, he will always ask “have you lacked anything?” and the answer in him is “no.” Jesus always provides us a way to have everything we need to survive if we just follow and believe in him.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for providing us with everything we need. Thank you for giving us the bread of life so we can be fed and nourished spiritually. Amen.

Tim Keller
