Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 05/29/11

This week’s scripture comes from 1 Corinthians:

For … the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood [which is shed for you]. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”             (1 Cor. 11:23-25)

Jesus said there is no greater love, no greater sacrifice, than that one lay down his life for another. Let us therefore give thanks for those who sacrificed themselves that we might be free, that we might live in the light of His word. Let us remember our Lord Jesus Christ who gave himself for us that we might know Him and the beauty of His grace, for through Him we are reconciled unto God our Father.

With thankful hearts, let us break bread together in His name, and, with repentant hearts, take up the cup of salvation in remembrance of Him who suffered and died for us that we might receive the blessing of eternal life. Praise God that He sent His Beloved Son, and bless His holy name.

May the sacrifice and blessings of our Lord Jesus Christ be yours this very day.
