Luke 22:19-20 (NIV):  last supper

And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.

Jesus, as the Lamb of God, was about to give his body to be broken and his blood to be shed in sacrifice, to free us from sin and death. It was during His Last Supper that Jesus established the Lord's Supper, or Communion, and commanded his followers Thus; “ Do this always in remembrance of me”. We therefore remember His sacrifice by sharing in the elements of bread and wine during the Holy Communion or the Lord’s Table.


Jesus, we thank you for giving your body as a complete and final sacrifice. Thanking you for saving us from sin and death. Thank you that we can stand and be counted righteous before God the Father and accepted as His children.
