Satan’s scheme to kill the Son of God was defeated on the cross he designed for Christ. Had Satan known that the death of the Messiah would mean death for him and life for us, he never would have crucified the King. He never saw it coming. And so that we would never forget, Jesus gave us our own celebration: “He took the bread, he gave thanks and he broke it, saying, ‘This is My body which is given for you;’ …He also took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.’” (Luke 22:19-20).
A broken body? Spilled blood? Can good come from this? Communion says, “Yes.” You have a good God, who has a good plan, and that plan is revealed in his good book. Today’s confusion and crisis will be tomorrow’s conquest.
