Maundy Thursday

As we pass the half-way mark of Holy Week, we come upon this quiet, unassuming day of Maundy Thursday. The day marks the observation of Passover by Jesus and His disciples before He was arrested early Friday morning. It was a night that Jesus gave them what some call the Eucharist, or the Lord’s Supper. He transformed an age-old tradition called Passover into testimony of His New Covenant through His body and blood.

It is usually observed with a sense of humility and awe, as we appreciate the gravity of the meal and its significance. We try to undertake the sense of commitment and love Jesus has not only for His disciples then, but for all people of all time who would benefit from His sacrifice. The Lord’s Supper is a celebration of Jesus’s love for us. It is also a reminder that He had to die for us, because we are sinners, and have no hope without Him.

Above all, remember today. Meditate on Jesus’ work for your salvation. Remember that He did all of this because He loves you.

God bless.
