Jesus had some important things to say to His Disciples and to us during His last meal with them.
First Jesus said we have to stay connected to Him. We can’t do anything without Him. If we are cut off from Jesus we are like the burn pile of dead branches I have in the back yard. But when we remain connected to Him, he can do great things through us.
Next Jesus said His love is so great that He would die for us. That is exactly what Jesus did the very next day. He took three nails and a cross for us to pay the price for sins. Jesus died so that we could have eternal life in Him.
Finally Jesus warned that the world would hate us because we follow Him. Ten of the twelve Disciples died as martyrs for their faith in Jesus. John died in exile for his faith in Jesus. Christians are still persecuted and martyred for their faith today. But in the face of opposition Jesus promises us the Holy Spirit so that we can tell others about Him.
