Morning Thrive

THOUGHT:  Are you connected to a church that does the Lord’s Supper regularly?

BIBLE:  And he took bread, gave thanks, broke it, gave it to them, and said, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” Luke 22:19

TRANSCRIPT: Have you ever forgotten someone's birthday? I hate it when that happens. You what I've started doing, I've started trying to put people's birthdays in my phone with an alarm or alert. So then it'll remind me, because I hate it when I've been with the person all day long and they go, "Oh, by the way, it's my birthday. I got a party. What party? My birthday party." I just hate it when that happens, I just don't remember these things. And we sometimes forget God's goodness in our own lives. Jesus never really tells us to remember his birthday, even though we do, but he does tell us to remember the cross. In fact, in Luke 22, verse 19, it says, "And he took bread and he gave thanks, and broke it and gave it to them and said, 'This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.'" Of course, he's talking about communion or the Lord's Supper, and he broke this bread as they sat there together, and he said, "This is my body."

Now, obviously it wasn't his actual body, his hand was handing them bread, and he said, "This represents the brokenness that I'm gonna endure on the cross. This represents the suffering I'm gonna endure on the across. This cup represents my blood, it's gonna be shed on the cross. And all of this is for your forgiveness, all of this is so that you can be made new, that you can be changed, that you can be right with God." So maybe when you've finished watching this video, you need to stop it and say, "Lord, I just want to remember all you've done, I never wanna forget your great love for me."
