As we observe communion today I’m reminded of Abbigail Johnson. I was just talking to her about baptism since, as many of you know, she just received Christ. What you may not know is that Abby was born prematurely ten years ago and needed a blood transfusion. Premature babies often don’t have enough red blood cells and if their anemia is severe enough, they will die.


I was called by the family to pray and also asked to go to the hospital to be tested, along with the family and other friends, to see whose blood was compatible to Abby’s. Soon thereafer someone from the hospital called and said, "Pastor Atwood, can you go to the Red Cross immedietely and donate blood? Your blood is the only match we could find for Abbigail’s." Of course I counted it a privilege to go right away and give my blood.


Folks we were all going to die and Jesus had the only blood suitable for our condition. All of us have blood tainted with sin but Jesus is the only One ever to have sinless blood. On the cross He donated His blood so you and I could have a transfusion.


With thanksgiving in our hearts we observe communion in honor of the One who gave His blood - the only possible match to offer us eternal life.
