Reflection on the Crucifixion


…………THOUGHT FOR THE DAY……………

AS THEY WERE EATING, JESUS TOOK BREAD, AND
BLESSED IT, AND BREAK IT, AND GAVE IT TO HIS
DISCIPLES, AND SAID, “TAKE, EAT; THIS IS MY BODY.”
AND HE TOOK THE CUP, AND GAVE THANKS, AND
GAVE IT TO THEM, SAYING, “DRINK YE ALL OF IT; FOR
THIS IS MY BLOOD OF THE NEW TESTAMENT, WHICH
IS SHED FOR MANY FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS.”
( MATTHEW 26:26-28 *KJV )

As we recall “The Last Supper” that Jesus shared
with His Disciples, let us be mindful of the meaning of MY
BLOOD OF THE NEW TESTAMENT.

The people of the old Covenant [those who lived before
Christ, could approach God only through a Priest and an
animal sacrifice.  Now we may come directly to God through
our faith, because the death of Jesus’ , and His glorious
Resurrection has made us acceptable in God’s sight!  For it
is written, FOR ALL HAVE SINNED AND FALL SHORT OF
THE GLORY OF GOD, BEING JUSTIFIED FREELY BY
HIS GRACE THROUGH THE REDEMPTION THAT IS IN
CHRIST JESUS.  ( ROMANS 3:23-24 *NKJV )

So, the next time you take communion
why not quietly reflect on the events that took place during
His Crucifixion, and Christ’s promise to return again.  For
that Return will be a truly joyful day for all of God’s Children!
