Day 5 - Thursday, The Last Supper, Prayer & Agony in Gethsemane

They were all there, Christ and His beloved apostles. They had been with Him for 3 years. Christ knew He was going to suffer greatly in Gethsemane that night, but still He thought of His disciples and took the time to teach them. As Christ broke the bread He told them it represented His body, and the wine, His blood.

During this Last Supper with his disciples He taught them about the sacred ordinance of the Sacrament. He knew it would be important to them, and important to us. Each week as we attend church we have the opportunity to take the Sacrament. And each week as we do let us be sure we ALWAYS remember WHY we are taking it, and what the sacrament bread and water represent.

“And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” Matthew 26:26-28

I Love the Song -

“It shouldn’t be hard to sit very still and think about Jesus His cross on the hill,
and all that He suffered and did for me,
it shouldn’t be hard to sit quietly”.   
(pg. 71 Children’s Songbook)
