On the night he was betrayed, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.”
Later that night, in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus prayed, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”
Those 8 simple words set a course of events that would forever change the entire world. Jesus Christ was arrested, beaten, whipped, tortured and crucified. He willingly endure all of this so that you may have a relationship with the Lord Almighty.
As Christians all over the world get ready to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, let’s take some time to reflect the suffering that Jesus endured so that you can come before the Lord and walk with Him. Jesus surrendered to His Father’s Will so that you can have eternal life. There is no greater love.
Listen, reflect and meditate on what Jesus did for you, what Jesus experienced and endured for you. Know that God loves you and wants a relationship with you. He will always be with you. This Holy Week, let’s pause and reflect on God’s love for us and all Jesus went through…for you…
