1 Corinthians 11:23-26 New Living Translation
Today is known as Maundy Thursday; the Last Supper Jesus shared with his disciples. The word Maundy is derived from the Latin word for “mandate” or “command.” We are mandated or commanded by Christ to love one another in humility, remember what he has done for us by laying down his life, and give Father God thanks for it. Let love fill your heart today; because God so loved the world that He gave His Son to take our place in death so we could join him in eternal life.
1 Corinthians 11:23-26
23 For I pass on to you what I received from the Lord himself. On the night when he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread 24 and gave thanks to God for it. Then he broke it in pieces and said, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way, he took the cup of wine after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant between God and his people—an agreement confirmed with my blood. Do this in remembrance of me as often as you drink it.” 26 For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are announcing the Lord’s death until he comes again.
Prayer: Thank you, Father, for sending your Son to die for my sin so I may live in fellowship with you each day. I am forgiven and blessed and I owe it all to you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
