Scripture Reading: Matthew 26:28
For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins
Reflections: Jesus ate the Passover supper with his disciples the night before his betrayal and subsequent arrest, which will lead to his death. Jews observe Passover to commemorate their miraculous liberation from Egyptian slavery through the ministry of Moses. As Jesus and his disciples celebrated this occasion, he did something extraordinary. He proclaimed that the unleavened bread and wine on the table represented his broken body and shed blood, respectively. Since he was still alive, his behavior amounted to a pledge that he would die to pay for the sins of the world. This promise was kept when he died a few days after uttering these words and was raised three days later, as he had predicted. The event of the Passover supper demonstrates provides why you must constantly trust God and depend on His word.
Prayer: Dear Lord I thank you for your ever faithfulness.
Confession: I trust God and depend on His word.
