Jesus is the Lamb of God who was broken and who bled for us. In his body, He was torn in two. He was broken so we can be made new. In his blood, he washed away our transgressions. His blood became a river of life to those who believe.
Our great Lamb was crucified to take away our sins. But in His crucifixion He also conquered death and hell. He made the powers of evil tremble. When we eat this bread and drink this cup, we are celebrating His victory over evil. In death, there is life. It is by His stripes that we are healed.
