The Bread of Life Broken for Us

Today is Maundy Thursday, the day we remember the Last Supper, when Jesus instituted the sacrament of communion, declaring the bread was His body broken for us.

A number of years ago I wrote this recipe for Redemption and the Bread of Life that will last us for an eternity if we choose to partake. This recipe was finished over 2,000 years ago, but to enjoy it you have to add two important things.

Redemption and the Bread of Life

Ingredients:

All the sin of mankind
One Spotless Lamb of God
One crown of thorns
Two wooden beams
Three nails
The blood of the Savior
Divine Love
One empty tomb
Belief
Confession

Directions:

The first part of the recipe was already finished when the Spotless Lamb of God took upon Himself all the sin of mankind, wore a crown of thorns, and was nailed to a cross made of two wooden beams. The blood of the Savior was shed because of Divine Love. After three days, one empty tomb was added to the recipe, and Redemption and the Bread of Life was ready for all to partake.

To enjoy Redemption and the Bread of Life, believe that the Spotless Lamb of God died for your sins and that God raised Him from the dead, and confess with your mouth that He is Lord of all.

Finally, I just want to leave you with a few scriptures regarding the Bread of Life and how Jesus finished all that needed to be done, except for you to believe. And even that, I believe, His Holy Spirit has a hand in allowing us to do.

Tomorrow is Good Friday, a somber day on which our Lord was crucified. But Sunday’s comin’ and Redemption is nigh’.

Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35 (NIV).

When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. John 19:30 (NIV).

Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!” John 20:1-2 (NIV).

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9 (NIV).
