The Big Point
DON'T FORGET TO REMEMBER. Jesus had one final meal with his disciples before his crucifixion. We refer to it as the Last Supper. While celebrating the passover, Jesus took some bread and broke it saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me." and gave it to the disciples. Then he took a drink in his hand and said, "This is my blood, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins."
Oftentimes in church we do this all over again. We pass out the two elements of communion and take time to remember Jesus' sacrifice. This significant reminder helps us to appreciate all that Jesus has done for us. The truth is that everyone has sinned and we all need God's forgiveness to go to Heaven. Through Jesus, we have that forgiveness.

2. What does it mean that Jesus' body was broken?
3. What must we do to go to heaven?
"If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." - Romans 10:9
