Picnic Bite

“Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” (Matthew 26:26–28)

The week is done and the work is nearing an end and a time of rest can be had for many. If you will take the rest offered by God I think He has something special for you. Picnics are old fashioned ideas of a simpler times. There is probably nothing more symbolic than a picnic to represent rest, renewal, and restored peace.

The one image from scripture that defines such a time of of love and peace is the last Passover Jesus celebrated with the disciples. The Spirit in the upper room filled the place with love and peace.

Jesus invites all of us into this rest in the Lord’s Supper and to be reminded that everything is going to be okay for the children of God. Think about the love in His body and in His blood that was given for you. Enjoy the a picnic today with Jesus and be reminded that nothing will separate you from the love of God.

If you haven’t be born again into the family of God then Jesus invites you today to believe in faith that He died for your sins and by repenting of your sins and believing in Jesus you can become a child of God by the Holy Spirit to be born again.
