Best Bake Off Ever – Creative Tuesdays
This week on Creative Tuesdays Michael’s challenge is “baked goodness”. As I thought about this challenge I realized that as a Christian I have this “baked goodness” every time I take communion. Michael gave us a link to the Great British Bake Off. And I see our communion as the Best Bake Off Ever.
During Lent I have been reading through Mark as we head towards Easter. One of the passages is Mark 14:22. Before Jesus was crucified He ate the Last Supper with His disciples. At that time this is what we read:
While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take it; this is my body.”
And then He went on to take the cup in Mark 14:23-24.
Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and they all drank from it.
“This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many,” he said to them.
The wine and the bread – a banquet for us. This is “baked goodness” at its best.
