Breaking the Bread

There is no one like you. You are unique. No one has a fingerprint like yours, a DNA that exactly matches yours. Roots are important, and not just to your plants. Your DNA shows what proclivities you may have regarding disease, intellect, temperament, and so much more.

There are 47 names listed in Matthew 1, most unpronounceable. Some are great, some not so great. From poppers to princes, shepherds to slaves, kings two harlots, spanning 21 centuries of human experience, the list ends in a stable on a starlit night with one name that is above every other name. Jesus.

The family tree of our Lord does not end with his ancestors, because we are his descendants and we have been born again into his forever family.

Can you tell me the full name of your great grandfather? Or anything about his life? Chances are your own children’s grandchildren or not even know your name. What really matters is this: are your true roots in the family tree of Jesus?

Lord, may I be more concerned this season about being on your list then on any other Christmas invitation list. In Jesus name Amen.

Sharing the Lord’s Supper

For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night He was betrayed, took 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.”

(Take the Bread)

In the same way, after supper He took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

(Take the Cup)

Go in His Peace!
