Mandatum

Today is Maundy Thursday or Holy Thursday It is the Thursday before Easter Sunday, observed by Christians in commemoration of Christ's Last Supper. The name Maundy is derived from mandatum (Latin for "mandate or commandment"). Jesus said not my will but God's will be done - it's doing God's plan His way.

In many churches, Communion is celebrated during the evening service to remind us of His obedience and sacrifice. Christ gave his followers at the Last Supper a commandment that they love one another (John 13:34).

For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. 15 And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.- 2 Corinthians 5:14-15

Are you showing the love of Christ? It’s mandated. Amen?
