Maundy Thursday Homily

April 1, 2021
First Christian (Disciples of Christ), St. John’s Episcopal, and Wabash Avenue Presbyterian Churches invite you to participate in this virtual Maundy Thursday worship service. Maundy Thursday marks the Last Supper, the Passover meal Jesus shared and enlarged into the Sacrament of Communion, which Christian believers still share today. Jesus shared this meal with his friends right before his betrayal, trial, and crucifixion. During this worship service, Communion will be celebrated and you are invited to receive the Sacrament using elements from home if and as allowed/directed by your pastor/denomination.

In reading this, your heart may be stirred. What you’re feeling is the Holy Spirit drawing you to Christ. To begin or renew a relationship with Jesus, just pray:

“Lord, help me receive your love. I regret the wrong I’ve done. Forgive me. Jesus, I believe you are God’s Son and the Savior of the world. Be my Savior. Save me from myself. Save me for yourself. Enter my heart. Fill me with your Holy Spirit. Help me to serve you faithfully and well. Help me to love as you love. Lead me in your Way, Truth, and Life now and forever. Continue to show me who you are and who I am in you. Amen.”

If you pray this prayer, contact a pastor. They’ll show you how to live for Christ with purpose, peace, and joy. Jesus says: “Behold, I make all things new.” That definitely includes YOU!
