Truth for Today
Luke 22:19 19 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”
Jesus gave HIMSELF for you and for me.
My greatest honor as a Pastor is to administer the Lord’s Supper. When I stand before believers holding the bread I say, “Jesus said, ‘This is my body given for you…’” I feel incredible gratitude. I am grateful because Jesus gave everything for me. He gave everything for you.
Then He simply tells us, “Do this in remember of me.”
We must never forget HIS perfect life. He was the perfect sacrificial lamb…without blemish.
We must never forget HIS atoning death. Sin requires a high price. It cost Jesus His life.
We must never forget HIS healing grace and forgiveness. Every soul burdened with sin can be free in HIM because He said, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” The happiest…most content…most whole people in the world are those who embrace HIS grace and forgiveness. My sin though it is terrible is washed through the sacrifice of JESUS my Savior.
Jesus gave Himself for you and for me.
O Jesus, You gave yourself for me. May I never forget nor take for granted Your perfect sacrifice…thank YOU…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
