The Story of Easter | Day Six

SATURDAY, MARCH 30TH

The woman broke her jar and poured out all of her perfume. She lavishly wasted everything that was of value to her. Breaking her jar effectively eliminated any chance of keeping any for her own use, then or later. She gave everything she had-past, present, and future-to Him. Jesus said that people would remember her remarkable love forever.

Then at the last supper, those same words appeared again. He broke His body and poured out His blood for us. This time when you read Jesus saying, "Do this in remembrance of me," don't just picture crackers and grape juice.

See communion as a picture of what it calls us to. He was beckoning us to do what He did: be broken and poured out. Go all in. Hold nothing in reserve. Completely relinquish control. That's what would truly commemorate what Jesus did. Not cherishing a ritual, but being a memorial.

What should "broken and poured out" look like in your life?
