This week we focused on remembering to follow God. Most of the passages we explored were from the Old Testament. The Old Testament is always pointing to the Messiah. The New Testament is good news that Jesus has come to save us by living a perfect life, dying on the cross in our place, paying the penalty of our rebellion against God for our forgiveness, and rising from the dead to give us a new life with Him forever. To remember this good news Jesus commanded His followers to celebrate the Lord’s Supper.


Read 1 Corinthians 11:23-26 slowly and prayerfully:

23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread,
24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.”
25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.”
26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. (NIV)
