ABCs of the Lord’s Supper

Recently I was listening to an old Wendell Winkler CD from PTP 2004. In the lesson, he gave several ideas for meditations on the Lord’s supper. One of his ideas was to take the ABCs and come up with a list of things that applied to the crucifixion from each letter. I remembered that I had come up with such a list after hearing this suggestion the first time, and I thought I would share it with you. I’m sure you will come up with many more, and I haven’t filled in very many verses yet, but this will hopefully get you started with the same idea. I hope that enriches the time you spend thinking about the sacrifice Jesus made.
