The Gift of My Blood – Mark 14:23-24

Key Passage

Then Jesus took a cup of wine. He thanked God for it and gave it to the followers. All the followers drank from the cup. Then Jesus said, “This wine is my blood. My blood (death) begins the new agreement {from God to his people}. This blood is given for many people.”

— Mark 14:23-24 ERV (Read Full Text)


Key Thought

Jesus’ blood, remembered in this last supper with his followers and continually celebrated by his followers today, seals a new covenant between God and Jesus’ followers. This is a covenant of grace, love, and life brought about by the sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross. This new covenant is our way of life as Jesus’ followers and is a better and eternal covenant provided to us by the blood of Jesus.


Prayer

Father in heaven, thank you for the price that was paid to bring us into a new covenant relationship with you. May my life be lived to honor that price and to fulfill that covenant. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
