Friday April 7th Matthew 26 : 26-28
While they were eating Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples saying
"Take and eat; this is my body".
The he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying,
"Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many, for the forgiveness of sins".

Picture the disciples gathered for this meal with Jesus — many of the women no doubt there too as followers and supporters of Jesus. Can you name some of them, and with their given names, maybe their "nicknames" too? "Rock", " encourager" or "beloved" — good nicknames that compliment the recipient — but what about "sons of thunder" or "betrayer"? Each name tells us something of their character.
Do you have a nickname? What would it tell us about you?
But you know, whatever our characters are like, we find someone like us sitting at that table. Whether we're fast or slow to speak; whether we're quick to encourage or too quick to criticise; whether we're utterly dependable or sometimes unreliable; whether we're generous or cautious with our possessions or our compassion, there's one like us in the upper room. And ALL are invited to drink from the cup of salvation, and share in the blood of the covenant poured out for the forgiveness of sins. The invitation is offered to you . . . . . whoever you are.

Honest before you, now, may I know myself forgiven, feel myself forgiven and increasingly live as a person of forgiveness — through your empowering Spirit.
