Mark 14: 22-24 ” While they were eating, Jesus took bread, giving thanks and broke it, and gave it to His disciples, saying, ‘ Take it; this is My body.’ Then He took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, and they all drank from it. ‘ This is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.’ He said to them.”

This was the first Communion Service…or Eucharist.  The Greek word actually means thanksgiving, and that’s what we should be doing each and every time we celebrate Communion.  Thanking Jesus for His sacrifice – His shed blood, and broken body for all.  Jesus didn’t have to come to earth and die an unspeakable death…but He did… and every time we hold those elements in our hands we need to thank Him for that obedience.  For without Him, we’d be lost. This Passion week, celebrate your own personal Eucharist of thanksgiving.
