Do This in Remembrance of Me

Daily God Walk for Friday, December 3, 2010

While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.”

Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it anew with you in my Father’s kingdom.

When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.                                   – Matthew 26:26-30

 For nearly 2000 years now Christians have been celebrating the Last Supper of Christ with his disciples. It is the most solemn event in the live of a believer. The bread represents the body which was broken for us and the fruit of the vine represents the blood sacrifice which was offered for the atonement of our sins.

As we partake we are reminded of the great suffering endured by our savior as he was being made a sacrifice for our sins. This event is not portrayed anywhere in Scripture better than the prophecy of Isaiah:

“He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.

We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” – Isaiah 53:3-6

 Principle:  The Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

 Affirmation:  I have received forgiveness through his sacrifice.

 Prayer:  Thank you Father for your great sacrifice. Amen.
