Though Christ was to die the next day, and to encounter the wrath of God (yes, that very night He was to be in agony and to sweat great drops of blood, and the next day to die and have these trials of wrath poured upon Him so as to put Him to cry out, “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?”), yet He busied himself that very night to institute this supper. Surely it must be a great ordinance, and there is a great deal of the love of Christ in it.
