Creating Memorable Moments

26 Jun

God’s Word: Matthew 26:26-30

God’s Message to me: (My interpretation of what God is saying in these verses)

Hearts touch hearts around the table. family099Jesus was in the habit of using everyday things to teach eternal lessons.  When he was out in the field he used the lilies or the wheat or the fig tree.  At the table he used the simple bread and cup to create a memorable moment—during his last meal with His friends.  He knew that the time of his crucifixion was approaching.  So that His disciples could share the moment with him he lifted the bread and said “Take, eat, this is my body.”  Then he lifted the cup and thanking God, passed it to them, saying, “Drink this, all of you.  This is My blood, God’s new covenant poured out for many people for the forgiveness of sins.” Jesus heart was knit together with His disciples in that simple act of remembrance.

You too can join in this memorable moment with Jesus.  As the church gathers for worship and fellowship you join hearts with Jesus as you partake of the bread and the cup.  In this simple act of remembrance you come face to face with Jesus’ unlimited love for you—love that caused Him to willingly lay down His life to purchase your redemption—your forgiveness.

Jesus death was the turning of the tide for mankind—a monumental memorable moment.  Prior to that, in order to purchase forgiveness you were required to make a sacrificial offering of the blood of an animal.  Jesus put an end to that means of forgiveness and once and for all—laid down his life—as the perfect sacrifice on your behalf.  Through obedience to Him you are granted forgiveness—and entrance to heaven.  Touch Jesus’ heart and really LIVE!

God’s Question: Are memorable moments with Jesus part of your life?

God’s Promise: Only your choice can separate you from Jesus love.

I praise You for Jesus willing sacrifice for me.

I am sorry I have sinned and hurt Your heart.

Thank You for so willingly forgiving me.

Help me to forgive and love others for You.
