VerseD: Luke 22:19

And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”
Luke 22:19, ESV

Christ’s body was broken so that we may be healed, at least spiritually for now, but eventually we shall join Him with glorified bodies.

John 13:34

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
John 13:34, ESV

Just as Jesus spoke truth to draw us nearer to Him and offered His life as a sacrifice for others, we must do the same. We may not die for our sacrifice, but we must look at others as more important than ourselves.

VerseD: Philippians 2:8

And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
Philippians 2:8, ESV

God became a man to do what we never could: be perfectly obedient and offer the perfect sacrifice to atone for our sin and rebellion.

VerseD: John 6:35

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.”
John 6:35, ESV

Jesus supplies all of our needs, though suffering may not cease until His return. Until then, our spiritual hunger and thirst are met. Then, all hunger and thirst shall be quenched.

VerseD: Luke 19:38

saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
Luke 19:38, ESV

How do we respond to the coming King? Are we as fickle as the crowd in Jerusalem 2000 years ago, shifting allegiance based on how we think Jesus should be? Or do we seek the truth of who He is?

VerseD: Psalm 46:10

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
Psalm 46:10, ESV

Do be too busy to leave out time for God.

Do not be anxious, remembering God is in control.

Stop. Spend time with God. Find contentment in His Word and presence.

VerseD: Psalm 126:5

Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy!
Psalm 126:5, ESV

God is a Comforter. He sees our tears, our pain and trouble. He has redeemed these through the cross.

Believe in Him, and find the joy that surpasses understanding!
