Journaling Lent: Day 28, The Bread of Life

In Luke 22.14-20 Jesus presents the disciples with the "first" Lord's Supper. He took the bread and broke it and said, "This is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of Me." He then took the cup of wine and said, "This cup is the new covenant established by My blood; it is shed for you."

Take. Do. Remember.

That should be our focus when not only taking the eucharist but when sharing our lives with others. Take. Do. Remember.

He offers Himself for us. Do we receive?

He gives us a call to action. Do we partake?

He instructs us to remember. Do we remember?
 

It's more than taking bread and wine every week. It's more than reciting a prayer or creed.

It's taking, doing, and remembering.

Remember what He has done and what He is doing. It is sacred. It is holy. Make it a part of your day, every day.

When the Israelites were in the wilderness God provided Manna for them everyday. If they took too much to try to store up for the next day, then it went bad. We are to be fed by God everyday. Go to Him everyday. Receive from Him everyday.

Remember what He said and does everyday.

He is the bread of life and only He can sustain us.
