The Journey to the Cross” Devotional Day 25: “Public Display”

The Riverbank Lent 2011 Devotional Plan
"The Journey to the Cross”
Day 25: Reading – 1 Corinthians 11:23-26

Focus: Verse 23 For I received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which he was betrayed took bread; 24 and when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, This is my body, which is for you: this do in remembrance of me. 25 In like manner also the cup, after supper, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood: this do, as often as ye drink 26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink the cup, ye proclaim the Lord’s death till he come.

Meditation:
Communion is fellowship, one that mustn’t be taken for granted or observed frivolously. It is important to remember that the next time one partakes of the Lord’s body and blood; one must do so orderly, properly, as often as possible with gratitude and understanding. It is an act of proclamation, an act whereby one publicly reveals an internal conviction. A public statement, show, support and identification with Christ’s death. For believers the cross is a place of divine exchange and we must acknowledge that without the Lord’s death there wouldn’t have been a resurrection. See, our today would have remained bleak, dark, painful and hopeless but the Lord’s death provided hope, a future, and freedom from sin, joy, redemption, salvation, deliverance, healing, victory and much more.

Prayer:
I pray that you will boldly proclaim the Lord’s death of often as you can in Jesus Name, Amen

God’s blessings,
