The Sacrifice

by PamFord Davis  
8/22/2017 / Devotionals

Bible passages sometimes trigger memories of influential people in our lives. Having experienced such moments this morning, I write in the memory of Martha Wennerberg.

Martha and I worked together in the Women’s Missionary Union of First Baptist Church of Defuniak Springs. She once served as Secretary of national WMU; I will be sharing a link to a death announcement (2008) at the close of this article. First, I share the Bible verses that spurred this message.

“As they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, gave it to the disciples, and said, ‘Take and eat it; this is My body.’ Then He took a cup, and after giving thanks, He gave it to them and said, ‘Drink from it, all of you.  For this is My blood that establishes the covenant; it is shed for many for the forgiveness of sins. But I tell you, from this moment I will not drink of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it in a new way in My Father’s kingdom with you.’ After singing psalms, they went out to the Mount of Olives (Matthew 26:26-30 HCSB).”

I recall Martha once sharing information about new language Bible translations; groups painstakingly translated the Old and New Testaments into languages of unreached people groups. She said translators (possibly Wycliffe) had to overcome a major obstacle when translating the above scripture passage.  It implied that Jesus commanded cannibalism. He did not.

As Baptists, we partake of Communion-the Lord’s Supper, (cup & the bread) in remembrance of Him. He died on the cross, offering His body, His blood as a sacrifice for our sin. He is risen!
