2009 Lenten Devotional and Prayer Guide

April 9

 

For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.”  (1 Corinthians 11:26)

 

Think about the power in this verse.  Whenever we participate in the communion service, we are proclaiming Jesus' death.  We are remembering that 2000 years ago he gave his body and blood for us.  He left the glory of heaven to take on a human body and live on earth.  Out of his love, He taught and performed many miracles.  Instead of the people being thankful, they crucified him on the cross, beating his body and spilling his blood.  That wasn't the end though - He rose from the dead.  He's now in heaven preparing a perfect place for us, and He will be coming back for us.  Whenever we take communion, we look both back to His sacrifice and forward to the ultimate victory!  [Written by: Holly]
