The Lord's Supper

Matthew 26, John 13


Jesus continued to eat supper with the remaining eleven disciples. As they ate, Jesus held up a piece of bread. First He gave thanks for it, then He broke it into pieces and shared it with His disciples.

"Take and eat this," He said. "This is My body."

Then Jesus took a cup of wine and gave thanks for it. He shared it with His disciples, saying, "Drink from this cup. This is My blood which will be poured out so that many can receive forgiveness for their sins.

"I will not drink any fruit of the vine until I drink it together with you, when we meet again in My Father's house."




What Does the Lord's Supper Mean?

Jesus commands us to eat and drink the Lord's Supper to remember his death.

Participating in this special meals a way of recalling the vast amount of suffering Jesus subject himself to - all for us. Thsi is the reason he came to earth. Jesus came to die as a sacrifice for our sins, not his.

Could you imagine making such a sacrifice? God doesn't command us to kill ourselves for another, but he does want us to remember the gift he has given us. The gift of forgiveness that we cannot earn. The gift of God's love that he has freely given to us. Accept your gift.
