Matthew 26:26-28 NIV 26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” 27 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

Everyone likes that special meal or dinner when there is a variety of food and family and friends have gathered.  At the end the meal you look forward to the next gathering, but the meal does not have the effect on a change for yourself or anyone else.

There is a meal that was instituted at the last super that Jesus would have with his disciples.  They thought that it was just the Passover meal that commemorates the Israelites leaving the bondage in Egypt.  Yet this meal that Jesus was having with his disciples was an explanation of the sacrifice that he would do for the remission of humankind sins when he would be crucified on the cross. At least once a month Christians gather for this meal in remembrance of what Jesus Christ did for humankind.   We call this meal the Lord’s Super or Holy Communion.  There are those who have the Holy Communion weekly or once a month.   Regardless of when we do partake of the Communion we must always remember the sacrifice that Jesus did for humankind when he died on the cross, and he rose from the dead.  If we believe in Jesus Christ, we can have eternal life.

This is the special meal.
