The Great Meal

  

S (Scripture): Matthew 26:26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after giving thanks he broke it, gave it to his disciples, and said, “Take, eat, this is my body.” 27 And after taking the cup and giving thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you, 28 for this is my blood, the blood of the covenant, that is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29 I tell you, from now on I will not drink of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.” 30 After singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

O (Observation): The great sacrifice, made significant not by our participation, but by Christ’s command.   Jesus institutes a meal for ALL PEOPLE.   In this meal, faith is kindled and renewed.  Jesus establishes a new covenant so that he wouldn’t just be WITH his people.  Now, he will live IN his people.  

For the forgiveness of sins…

A (Application):  For you… for me…

P (Prayer): Lord, we are humbled by your great sacrifice…that you make us whole.  Amen.
