Day 43: He Did It For You


"So the last will be first, and the first will be last." (Matthew 20:6).

WHAT????

But I want to be first in line.

I want to get the first piece of cake.

I want to be the first. I don’t want to be last,

because isn’t the first the best?

Well, depending on how you look at it.

THE LAST~

Your last meal before the diet.,

Can’t you just taste it~

Eating all the “forbidden” foods as if you will never get to eat them again.

Your

LAST SUPPER.

HIS LAST SUPPER.

Did the disciples really understand that this really was

JESUS' LAST SUPPER~

before HE was to be crucified?

And what did

JESUS do~

HE spent

HIS LAST SUPPER

ministering to HIS disciples one more time

before

HE left earth so they could

“…grasp how wide and long and high and deep…” (Ephesians 3:17)

HIS love was for them & for us

as HE shared this Last meal with the one who would send

HIM right to the cross,

as JESUS looked directly into HIS betrayer’s face

& shared HIS LAST SUPPER.

But whose LAST SUPPER was it really?

It was Judas’s last

because he couldn’t live with himself after he saw what his betrayal would do

to the One whom he followed~

but he did it anyway.

For 30 pieces of silver he sold his birthright~

just as Esau sold his birthright at his last supper at being first.

Now picture yourself sitting around

JESUS' table

at your

LAST SUPPER

where HE lifts up the bread &

"gave thanks to GOD for it. Then HE broke it in pieces and said,

'This is MY body, which is given for you'"...

and then as HE lifts up the glass of wine & said,

“This cup is the new covenant between GOD and HIS people

—an agreement confirmed with MY blood…

~representing HIS blood that would be shed

at your LAST SUPPER.

Do you get it? Do you really get it~

That the KING of your heart,

Who loves you so much,

would spend HIS LAST SUPPER with you,

knowing that you & I would deny

HIM~

but JESUS did it anyway.

The

LAST SUPPER was for us~

"Do this in remembrance of ME.” (1 Corinthians 11:23-25)

HIS LAST SUPPER.

is

OUR LAST SUPPER

when we remember OUR SAVIOR,

when we eat of HIM & drink of HIM

because you

“ have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end.

Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of GOD" (I Peter 1:23)

Now are you ready to

FAST

from being

LAST

& from experiencing

HIS PEACE

HIS JOY

HIS LOVE

at LAST?

Therefore,

today as you remember

HIS LAST SUPPER

Put

JESUS FIRST

because

HE has called you to be FIRST

at

HIS LAST SUPPER.

because

"HE personally carried our sins in HIS body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin & live for what is right. By HIS wounds you are healed. Once you were like sheep who wandered away. But now you have turned to your Shepherd, the Guardian of your souls"

I Peter 2:24-25
