Advent: Day 13

Each Advent, I commit to reading the daily lectionary, the Bible readings that prepare our hearts for the celebration of Christ’s coming. This year, I’m writing a brief reflection on these readings each weekday. It’s Advent, day thirteen.

Readings: Isaiah 7:10-25; 2 Thessalonians 2:13-3:5; Luke 22:14-30

We are betrayers. We are partakers. We are everything in between. Remember, remember, remember.

Then he took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me." And he did the same with the cup after supper, saying, This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood. But see, the one who betrays me is with me, and his hand is on the table." ~Luke 22:19-21

Are you partaker? Are you betrayer?
