THURSDAY, APRIL 18
Scripture to Read: Matthew 26:14-75
As Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper or Communion, imagine what that evening must have been like for His disciples. He washed their feet, He ate with them and drank the cup, He wrestled in prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane and then Peter denied Him. It was for this reason that He came.
Jesus, I can’t read this without feeling the shock and unworthiness of what You went through on our behalf. When You washed the disciples feet, what were You thinking? How did they respond? What did You experience in the garden when Your friends fell asleep? Thank You that we can experience intimacy and closeness during communion remembering what You did.
