Maundy Thursday

Luke 22: 17-20 ESV
And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he said, "Take this, and divide it among yourselves. For I tell you that from now on I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes." And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me." 20And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, "This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.

Today is Maundy Thursday. This is the day we celebrate Jesus' last supper with his disciples. As we take communion tonight, let us remember our Lord's final moments with his followers.
