1 Corinthians 5:6-8
Your bragging is not good. You know the saying, “Just a little yeast makes the whole batch of dough rise.” Take out all the old yeast so that you will be a new batch of dough without yeast, which you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. So let us celebrate this feast, but not with the bread that has the old yeast—the yeast of sin and wickedness. Let us celebrate this feast with the bread that has no yeast—the bread of goodness and truth.
(New Century Version (NCV))

Loving Divine Family,

What wondrous love is this! You laid yourself down for our sake. You died a gruesome death, suffered the gates of Hell, and completed your ministry. You now appear to us again with a new message; new bread made from good, new grain, instead of old yeast. All things are new because of you.

Bread of Life, thank you for this holy sacred time with you. Thank you for the invitation to celebrate Christ’s resurrection and a new way of living. You are goodness and truth.

I partake of your new bread today, Loving LORD, and thank you for…

We hear your call to follow you, to release and let go of the old wilderness manna so we can come with you into the new way. Take our hand and help us to drop these old ways of living so we can walk freely with you.

With joy, we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
