The Last Supper~ Jesus celebrated it with His friends~ all save one betrayer. We celebrate with Jesus His life and His death and resurrection. Even today Jesus invites us to dine with Him and remember the new covenant He is establishing with us for all eternity.

Then knowing what is about to come upon Him, Jesus heads to pray for strength in the Garden of Gethsemane. (In Hebrew~ geth-shemen meaning “oil press”. Perhaps symbolic~ as the precious oil pressed from the olives in His day, Jesus life was pressed out of Him that we might have His anointing oil of grace for our lives today.)

That night and the next day became a period of excruciating torture for Jesus. They flogged Him beyond recognition with many tonged whips having sharp objects tied on the ends. These dug flesh off the bones and Jesus received 40 such lashings. They mocked Him with a crown of thorns pounded into His skull.

Then he was made to carry the heavy tree of the cross arm up to Golgotha, the place of the skull. He could not do it alone, so soldiers commandeered Simon to help. They cast His bloodied body down upon the cross and nailed large nails thru His wrists severing the tendon that goes to the shoulder. Then they pounded a large nail thru the arches of His feet, one on top of the other, into the cross.

Jesus hung fighting for each breath in terrible agony for three hours (Have you ever been in excruciating pain? How long could you stand it?) Most of His precious blood was drained from His body. Finally it was finished, our debt paid in full, and He gave up His spirit to the Father.

On the third day Jesus rose from the dead! Death was defeated! Jesus is alive!

It is our sin that separates us from God. The hideous punishment endured by Jesus for us became  the bridge of rejoining. Because of what Jesus’ love did for us, we are able to embrace His love-gift and see our sins flushed away as we become new creatures. Yes, new creations. Our old sin nature dies, and we are reborn with God’s nature, His DNA, in us making us truly His sons and daughters. This opens the door to His throne room of relationship.

Father God invites us to come close and enjoy a new communication with Him, experiencing His love!
Jesus' suffering paid our sin debt. We are now free to enjoy a life of victory and close relationship with God in this life and in eternity.

Jesus bloody suffering bought that for you and me. How can one not accept this gift?
