In this twenty-sixth episode, Joshua and Kerrie talk about Jesus’ invitation for everybody and anybody to take a seat at the table. Jesus wanted to be with each individual. They agree it’s powerful to realize that not even those who would betray him were excluded on Holy Week Thursday, also known as Maundy Thursday.
The series God word:
“Now before the Feast of the Passover, Jesus knowing that His hour had come that He would depart out of this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end” (John 13:1, NASB).
Today’s God word:
Jesus: “It has been My deep desire to eat this Passover meal withyou before My suffering begins. Know this: I will not eat another Passover meal until its meaning is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”
He took a cup of wine and gave thanks for it.
Jesus: “Take this; share it among yourselves. Know this: I will not drink another sip of wine until the kingdom of God has arrived in fullness.”
Then He took bread, gave thanks, broke it, and shared it with them.
Jesus: “This is My body, My body given for you. Do this to remember Me.”
And similarly, after the meal had been eaten, He took the cup.
Jesus: “This cup, which is poured out for you, is the new covenant, made in My blood.”
Key: “The hour had come.” Accept Jesus’ invitation and, then, invite everyone and anyone to take a seat. Serve one another.
