Here’s my Easter Communion Devotional. I tried to keep it short and sweet.
1On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ” 8Then they remembered his words. (Luke 24: 1 -8)
Each week we set aside this portion of our service to remember Jesus and what he did for us. We do this by sharing a meal that consists of a little piece of bread, which represents his body, and a little cup of juice, which represents his blood. We do this because he asked that we do so in remembrance of him.
Today as we remember him, let us also remember his words and not forget that our savior died for our sins and rose to conquer death so that we may live forever with a perfect, loving God.
