Read & Ponder for Sunday Oct 5, 2014
Thanks for the Food
1 Corinthians 11:23-26 (NRSV)
For I have received from the Lord what I also handed on to you,
that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed
took a loaf of bread, 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.”
In the same way he took the cup also, after supper, saying,
“This cup is the new covenant in my blood.
Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”
For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup,
you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
