Why Easter Matters Week 1 Day 5

Why Easter Matters Week 1

Thursday

Read: Luke 22:17-20

Amplified:

17 And He took a cup, and when He had given thanks, He said, Take this and divide and distribute it among yourselves;

18 For I say to you that from now on I shall not drink of the fruit of the vine at all until the kingdom of God comes.

19 Then He took a loaf [of bread], and when He had given thanks, He broke [it] and gave it to them saying, This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.

20 And in like manner, He took the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament or covenant [ratified] in My blood, which is shed (poured out) for you.

The Message:

17-18Taking the cup, he blessed it, then said, “Take this and pass it among you. As for me, I’ll not drink wine again until the kingdom of God arrives.”

19Taking bread, he blessed it, broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, given for you. Eat it in my memory.”

20He did the same with the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant written in my blood, blood poured out for you.

S.O.A.P.: Luke 22:19-20

S.  Then He took a loaf [of bread], and when He had given thanks, He broke [it] and gave it to them saying, This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me. And in like manner, He took the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament or covenant [ratified] in my blood, which is shed (poured out) for you.

O.  He created a covenant with his disciples and did things in order for them to remember him and what he had done for them.

He was noting his sacrifice for them even before it happened.

A.  When we take communion at church or in our homes this is something we do to remind ourselves what God did for us. His sacrifice to die in our stead even though he was an innocent man. When we take the communion we are making a covenant with our Father that we belong to him and will do what he has commanded in His word that we do.

P.  Lord, help me to always remember your sacrifice that your body was broken that mine would be healed. That you took the punishment for our sins and shed your blood that I may live. Lord, let me always keep that at the forefront of my mind in order to do what it is that you have called me to do and follow after your example.

  1. “He was noting his sacrifice for them even before it happened.”
    How amazing is that?! The one part of the scripture that always stands out for me is the part where Jesus says “this is my body which was broken for you” (depending on translation). When you look at the fact that He knew what He was about to endure, and He did it so willingly, it both fills me with gladness and sorrow at the same time.
