This is the day we remember the night Jesus broke bread and poured wine for his disciples. The event we call The Last Supper. During this time Jesus spoke. He told his disciples the bread was meant to represent His body, and the wine His blood. He asked them to do this in remembrance of Him. Jesus also announced that one among them would betray Him.
Can you imagine being one of the 12 on that fateful night? How must that have that felt? I think I would be right in the midst of the argument announcing to everyone that it wouldn’t dare be me to betray our Lord. Yet, He took the punishment for me… He took the punishment for us all. We have all betrayed our Savior in one way or another. While it may not be exactly the same as Judas, I would imagine it’s still completely heartbreaking to Him.
Today I sit here and I reflect on all that this week means. I am so incredibly grateful for a Lord that loves me despite my faults. A Savior that gave his life, so that I may be cleansed and forgiven. A God that loves me, even when I choose to sin. What a night that night must have been. Starting with a dinner and ending with our savior in chains. This definitely was a night to remember!
