On the Night He was Betrayed Things Changed

I was reading my daily devotional today. It included this snippet from Luke 22: 35Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you out to preach the Good News and you did not have money, a traveler’s bag, or an extra pair of sandals, did you need anything?”“No,” they replied. 36“But now,” he said, “take your money and a traveler’s bag.
