broken and poured out


devotional post # 2063

Luke 22:19-20

Luk 22:19 And he took bread, and after he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, and this is what he said, “This is my body, given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”
Luk 22:20 And he took the cup,in the same way, after they had eaten, and this is what he said, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant made at the cost of my blood.

broken and poured out

Notice what our Lord did to the elements symbolizing his life. He broke the bread. His body was soon to be broken. He poured out the wine. His blood was soon to be poured out. He showed how the atonement would be an exchange: his brokenness for our wholeness, his emptying for our fullness.

LORD, praise you for your atoning sacrifice!
