And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
1. I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me,
Confused at the grace that so fully he proffers me.
I tremble to know that for me he was crucified,
That for me, a sinner, he suffered, he bled and died.
Oh, it is wonderful that he should care for me
Enough to die for me!
Oh, it is wonderful, wonderful to me!
2. I marvel that he would descend from his throne divine
To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine,
That he should extend his great love unto such as I,
Sufficient to own, to redeem, and to justify.
3. I think of his hands pierced and bleeding to pay the debt!
Such mercy, such love and devotion can I forget?
No, no, I will praise and adore at the mercy seat,
Until at the glorified throne I kneel at his feet.
Ask: How does this picture relate to Jesus Christ?
Read aloud: One of the greatest ways we can worship our Savior is to partake of the sacrament in a sacred and meaningful manner. Christ instituted the sacrament during his mortal ministry as a way for his disciples to remember him and renew their covenants. The same is true for us today.
Have someone read the sacrament prayers found in D&C 20:77-79.
Ask: What are some of the things we promise to do in these scriptures? What are some of the blessings we are promised in return?
Read aloud: Worthily partaking of the sacrament should be the highlight and focus of our Sabbath day. However, there are many things that can make it hard to truly partake of the sacrament as Christ would like us to. We can become distracted. We can get used to it. We can forget why it is important. We can not think about the sacrament at all during the week and come unprepared.
Ask: Why can it be hard to focus on the sacrament? What can we do to make the sacrament a more sacred time?
Read aloud: To partake of the sacrament prepared by the priesthood is a great blessing and privilege. Here are a few questions we can ask ourselves to know how we feel and prepare for the sacrament.
- Do I think about the words of the sacrament hymn?
- Do I listen to the sacrament prayers?
- Do I remember that Jesus suffered and died for me?
- Do I feel sorry for mistake I have made?
- Do I promise to do better?
- In what ways can I improve?
Finish the lesson by asking people to share how the sacrament has blessed their life. Share any personal experiences you may have. Bear your testimony.
