These short meditations focus one's attention on Jesus Christ and what He accomplished by being crucified on a cross. Because of His resurrection, Christians rejoice and remember the Lord in a ceremony called "The Lord's Supper" by eating and drinking some elements of no consequence that are anything but inconsequential.


Excerpt

Did you grow up in a family that gathered around the table at special times – Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Easter, Memorial Day, even if it was a picnic table? Or maybe the common meal of the day was a time of gathering around the table. Can you recall times in your life when someone called out, “Supper's ready!” “Come and get it!” “Soup's on!” “Get it while it's hot!” These are ways of saying, “Let's gather around the table.”

When our Lord Jesus Christ shared a particular meal with his disciples, called the Passover, it was significant because of a new meaning attached to the Exodus story. In that story, a lamb had been killed and the blood sprinkled on the doorposts of the Israelites so that they would be saved. In the new story that Jesus shared with his followers, he said that he would be killed and that his blood would be poured out so that all people could be saved.

This was the setting of a meal that has become known as “The Last Supper.” It was a gathering of believers around a table, listening to their Master explain what was about to happen; why it was to happen; and, how to remember this occasion.

To this day believers gather at The Lord's Table, using two symbols, bread and wine, to remember that his body was broken and blood was shed on their behalf. “Salvation is in none other.”
