Sing, My Tongue
"For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death till He comes." This week we pause to hear God's word and receive Christ's Body and Blood, which He gives us for the forgiveness of sins. The same night He was betrayed Jesus left this new covenant, a new testament, to His disciples. Jesus died on the cross, descended into hell and rose again in the body on the third day. These days are rich in history and meaning for Christians. With the joy of Jesus' resurrection, we look forward to His coming again even as He does now in the Holy Supper. Jesus' cross and the redemptive benefits God gives us through this sacrifice makes this a holy week. We are reminded of His Passion and live in His life and salvation. Blessings in this Holy Week.
