With Easter around the corner and everyone’s family barbecue and camping plans fixed, it is of course also nice to plan an Easter feast.
An Easter meal is an ode to the last meal that Jesus had with his disciples before his crucifixion. Jesus served his disciples at that last meal. We read in Luke that Jesus was very much looking forward to this meal with his followers.
In the gospel of Luke, He tells them to think of Him every time they break bread together:
Then Jesus took the bread, thanked God for it, broke it into pieces and gave it to his disciples. “Take it and eat,” He said. “This is my body. Think of Me every time you break and eat this bread together. Then remember that I sacrificed my life for you.”
Today we have an Easter meal together as families to also sit at the table with Jesus, to remember what He gave His life for.
“This cup is the sign and the proof that God is making a brand new agreement with you. My blood that will soon flow will wash away all your sins. This will make you stand in a new relationship with God.”
Set an Afrikaans table for your family this Easter and serve them as Jesus served his disciples. Then also read Luke 22 to them as a happy reminder of the greatest sacrifice that has ever been made. It doesn’t matter if you celebrate this Easter at home or in the bush, a piece of bread and a little wine is all that is really needed.
