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."
In the same way, after supper He took the cup, saying,
"This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me."
For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until He comes.
1 Corinthians 11: 23-26
knowing that bread and wine were an essential part of every meal in his day.
And the challenge to us, is that whatever form Breaking Bread takes, whether in a church service or round the kitchen table, every time we do it we are to remember Jesus’ death – not with mournful introspection …. but as an act of warfare!
On the Cross, Jesus dealt with every assault of the Evil One.
When we Break Bread we proclaim the victory of His death over the powers of darkness.
our circumstances, our households and our neighbourhoods when we break bread this Easter....
and afterwards too!
