DAILY DEVO...the cost of seevanthood

We are called to serve others because Christ first served us. Today's Scripture reading takes us to the Last Supper, a perfect example of serving.

Here we find Christ sitting with His disciples for a final Passover meal, before His death...

(Luke 22:19) "He took some bread and the wine and handed it to His disciples, saying, 'Do this in remembrance of me' "

Let's take a minute and consider what this even means. The broken bread and the wine speak of the core of our faith: the sacrifice of Christ.

When I think of the last time His Followers saw Jesus before His death, they saw Jesus as a Slave.

Jesus got up from the table and the sound of water could be heard as He poured water in a basin. Then with a towel wrapped around Him, He moved from one Follower to another, washing their feet.

Christ served them and He serves us by being the example of what servanthood looks like. Even up to His death, Jesus served others.

Taking communion is just one way that we remember the sacrifice of Christ. Another way we remember is by serving others, may we serve others, even up until our own death.


TODAY'S SCRIPTURE READING: Judges 19:1-20:23, Luke 22:7-30, Psalm 77:1-11
