"The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me."
1 Corinthians 11:23
Jesus, on the night he was betrayed by a dear friend, offers thanksgiving to God. Jesus, on the night before his Father allows him to be humiliated andhang on a cross to die, offers thanksgiving. Jesus gives thanksgiving for even the very thing that will break him, crush him, wound him... and ultimately bring joy.
I need to let that sink in for awhile.
