A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, September 13

Matthew 26:30

When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

This verse follows the last supper with Jesus and the disciples. I had never before taken note of the fact that Jesus and the disciples sang together on that night. What did that mean to them, to Jesus? The music undoubtedly was comforting to them, although the disciples did not really know what was coming. Jesus may have found the music to be a way to speak to his Father, at a time when emotion filled his human body. It is enough to know that they sang together, but wouldn't it be amazing to know what they sang?

Holy Lord, I have always loved music, and have always enjoyed singing hymns. You put music in my heart and I am thankful. But to learn that Jesus sang with the disciples after the last supper moves me. I will meditate more on this scene. Amen
