HOLY WEEK GRATITUDE

I Corinthians 11:23-26

Today, I’m grateful that my sins were left on the cross of Christ!

We’re having a rough week and so was Jesus! Let’s stroll down memory lane with guest blogger, Dr. Brandon A. A. J. Davis .

As we prepare for resurrection Sunday across the world, many of our churches will be empty. The usual experience of massive attendance, a fan fare of fashion, shoes, and hats, and no doubt a most riveting and exciting worship service will be missing in many areas globally.

While the season is a joyous occasion for us to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior, it is also a time for deep reflection and appreciation for what Christ did for us on the Cross. Paul’s letter to the Corinthian church was designed to show them how to properly observe the Lord’s Supper, too often we are caught up in the ritual act of worship that we miss the simplicity of what Christ demonstrated to us as a memorial for remembering his work on the Cross.

The elements shared all have a special place and meaning and they all symbolize the acts of the crucifixion. The bread or the host represented Christ body that was broken for us, the wine was a representation of his blood that cleanses and saves us from our sins. They together are the reconciling deeds that bring us into full reconciliation with God. While it is many of our churches customs and traditions to celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ at Easter, and on the first Sunday of each month, let us develop a personal and daily reminder that had it not been for the work of the cross, our salvation would not been made possible.

Perhaps our preaching and ministry is suffering from blood loss trauma, due to the lack of a bloodless gospel message, however, I encourage you to remember that if there was no shedding of blood, there could be no repentance of our sins.

While we celebrate the life of our savior, let us on a daily basis remind ourselves of the death and crucifixion. One theologian said that it hurt God deeply to have to crucify his son, but there was no other sacrifice atonable for the sins of the world more acceptable than the death of Christ.

Our celebration of him should extend beyond Easter. It  should be a daily reminder that we are because he died, and we live because he gave his life as atonement for all sin. Amen.
