This Sunday, we take a break from our series in the gospel of John and focus on the cross and celebrating the Lord’s supper. Our text for this communion service is Luke 23:32-46. Here in this passage, we are at the crucifixion of Christ where it is interesting to see the continual ministry of Jesus even as He goes through the most difficult, most painful time of His humanity. Being hung on a cross even as He had no sin; He becomes sin for us. He takes our sin, every dirty thought every dirty deed ever thing evil we ever did and will do, is “nailed to His cross and I bear it no more, praise the Lord, praise the Lord O my soul!” Jesus the Messiah loved us that much. Here in our text, we see the responses of people to Christ, his death, His past ministry, His words and His works. In this message we will point out these responses and then ask: What’s your response? Have you come to Jesus for His cleansing power? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb? Are you motivated in your Christian walk to press on for the Lord? Let’s be motivated to live for Jesus as we celebrate what He did for us this Sunday morning.
