Text: Matthew 26:17- 30

What do these things mean? What do they represent?

To some people, they wouldn’t mean much. Perhaps just some junk. But to me, they are valuable. You see, they are items that belonged to my __________, They remind me of his life. Basically, they are all I have by which to remember him.

All of us will leave something behind for our children and grandchildren to remember.

What will you leave behind?
- money? That would be nice. Some do and some can.
- material things, such as houses and cars, boats and bikes?
- memories of hard work?

ILL.- Share one memory.

We all leave things behind by which our children and grandchildren and other relatives will remember us.

And we all should strive to live in such a way that we will leave behind some good memories.

1. Some positive memories.
2. Some spiritual memories.
3. Some loving memories.

Think about your life. Think about the legacy that you will leave behind.


Our Lord also left some things behind by which to remember Him.

HE LEFT US HIS WORD. We can go back as often as we want and read about what He did. How he ministered to others. How he served others. How he loved others.

What a wonderful book he has left behind for our benefit and blessing!


Matthew 26:17-30

There are two basic components of this memorial: the bread and the fruit of the vine. Let’s think about their meaning.


Jesus instituted His Supper by observing the Jewish Passover meal with His disciples. This meal was instituted by God to commemorate the deliverance of the Jews from Egyptian bondage and the sparing of the firstborn when the destroying angel killed the firstborn of the Egyptians.

And just as the Israelites were delivered from bondage, so we have been delivered from bondage to sin and Satan through the slain Lamb of God, Jesus Christ.

Only unleavened bread was used in the Passover meal. We use the same because this symbolizes the purity and sinlessness of Christ.

Heb. 4:15 “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”

Did you hear that? YET WAS WITHOUT SIN.

Name your strongest, biggest temptation! Guess what? JESUS HAS BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT! Jesus was tempted just like us; in every way, YET WAS WITHOUT SIN!

Do you mean to tell me that Jesus was tempted with fleshly desires? Fleshly cravings? Desire for sexual impurity? Desire for recognition, for fame and wealth? Yes! Yes! Yes! YET, HE WAS WITHOUT SIN! Jesus is our perfect Savior.

- The bread also reminds us of Jesus coming in the flesh.

We believe that Jesus came in the flesh! We believe that God became flesh!

Matt. 1:23 “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.’”

- The bread also remind us of how Jesus suffered for us, before the cross and on the cross.

Jesus was beaten. He was made to carry His own cross. He was stripped of His clothes. A crown of thorns was placed on His head. He was mocked. Spit upon. Struck on the head with a staff. Then He was nailed to the cross.

Surely, we would have to say that Jesus was tortured to death! JESUS SUFFERED HORRIBLY FOR US!
But Jesus suffered far more than just the physical.

II Cor. 5:21 “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

Jesus became sin for us. The God-man became the sin-man. JESUS BECAME OUR SIN ON THE CROSS! Jesus traded places with us. And when that happened Jesus cried out, “My God, my God, why have thou forsaken me?”

The Father forsook His son. He turned His back on His son. Why? How could He do such a thing? It’s because Jesus had become sin on the cross. Jesus was separated from God. That’s the extreme penalty of sin. And Jesus paid that price for us!

Hell or the 2nd death is separation from God. And that’s what Jesus suffered on the cross for us! AND WE REMEMBER HIM AND THIS IN HIS SUPPER!


In the Passover, the sprinkling of the blood over the doorpost was what saved the people of Israel from the destroying angel. And it’s the blood of Jesus that saves us from certain destruction!

In the Lord’s Supper, the fruit of the vine symbolizes the blood of the Lamb of God which was shed for the forgiveness of our sins.

Matt. 26:28 Jesus said, “For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.”

Heb. 9:22 “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.”

God required a blood sacrifice for man to be forgiven of his sins and JESUS BECAME THAT BLOOD SACRIFICE!


Jesus left His memorial by which to remember Him. It is unlike any other memorial left behind. It is not hard, cold or lifeless. It is fresh and meaningful.

As we partake, may He become even more fresh and more meaningful than ever before.
