devotional easter


That is my physique, given for you; do that in remembrance of me.” Luke 22:19 (NIV)

I keep in mind waking up in a slender twin mattress. I used to be at a ladies’s retreat: two nights away from residence, with time to spend with God within the firm of different ladies. It was nonetheless early. I reached for my Bible and opened it to Luke chapter 22. I heard the ladies within the hallways, preparing for the day. There was cheerful chatter and noise that may solely occur at a ladies’s retreat the place thirty ladies must share bogs and hairdryers.

I used to be nonetheless studying when the Spirit stopped me in my tracks:

That is my physique, given for you;
That is my physique, given for you;
That is my physique, given for you!

The phrases rang in my ears as I heard the sound of the ladies within the background. Ideas and feelings collided. That is my physique given for you. These have been members of our church “the Physique of Christ” they usually too got to me. I had at all times thought solely of Christ’s bodily physique and His providing when taking communion. For the primary time, I felt the sacred present within the presence of my fellow members of the Physique. These are the individuals we share our lives with, our neighborhood. A present to everybody who’s prepared to partake.
