Luke 22, 19

I.  

Our need of spiritual help.  We are helpless as we face life, hurt as we are by sin, til our souls are strengthened by grace.  “I can of mine own self do nothing.”  If Christ needed the Father’s help how much more do we?  We should always approach this Sacrament in this spirit–looking to Him.

II.

Jesus gave himself for us in sacrificial love.  He is our Passover.  Every privilege we have of seeking and finding grace we owe to him.  He is the Bread of life–only he can nourish the soul and build us up, making us good and strong.  What an unspeakable blessing is he to all who look to him.

III.

Let us trust him fully, praying that he will impart to us his grace–that he will today break to us the Bread of Life.

May we go from this service consciously strengthened, our love increased, our holy desires made stronger, our purposes to live for him settled and fixed, that in life we may fill the place he wills we should occupy.
