THE LORD’S SUPPER

March 16

Here Jesus is establishing the Lord’s Supper in which we remember the shedding of Jesus’ blood in His dying on the cross for our sins and also look forward to His second coming. This is not an act which can do anything to save us or contribute to it but the drinking of the cup is a picture of the shedding of His blood.  Jesus was putting the New Covenant into place in which those who trust in the shed blood of Christ by His dying on the cross, being buried and rising the third day would become a Child of the King (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). We who have believed in Him for salvation should celebrate this fact of all that He did for us to forgive our sins and remember that He is coming again. Those who have not trusted in Him should trust Him now. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

“By the word many he means not a part of the world only, but the whole human race.” 3John Calvin, 3:214.

Mark 14:24 And Jesus said to them, “This is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many.
