And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” - Luke 22:19
Dear Jesus, we all want to be remembered after we are gone. But when I think about it, I want to be remembered for selfish reasons. I am insecure about my life and want to know that I was significant enough to be remembered. But you gave us this great supper so we would remember you for our own benefit. How easily we forget that our spiritual connection is totally dependent on your sacrifice and grace. With this regular meal we are drawn back to redeeming grace and our appreciation of your undying love is rekindled and then we believe in divine love again. What an ingenious gift you left for us - a tangible way to remember grace! Thank you for Maundy Thursday and what it gives all of us. AMEN
"The Lord's Supper is made with love, for love and to love."
