Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 05/28/17

This week’s scripture is from Luke:

And he took 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.” (Luke 22:19 ESV)

Let us remember Him who gave His life for us that we might live, for Jesus came that we might be reconciled to God by shedding His blood for our sins. He paid the debt we cannot pay, for it is by His blood that we are forgiven our trespasses, and it is by His sacrifice, His body beaten and broken and bleeding, that we can live, for our sins were nailed to the cross that He died upon. He who was sinless became sin for us that we might not perish but have everlasting life with the Father who sent His one and only son to save us from ourselves and redeem us from the pit. Let us praise Him, and give thanks.

May the Lord bless you to always remember what was given for you.
