Since 2012, She Reads Truth has maintained a singular mission: to be women in the Word of God every day. Ten years later, our community includes “Shes” from across the globe, but our mission hasn’t changed.

Reading Scripture together is the centerpiece of what we do at She Reads Truth. As we spend time as a community reading This Is The Church, we encourage you to start by reading the daily Scripture on your  own. Then join us here to engage and encourage one another as we respond to what we’ve read. Each day for this series, we’ll include a brief summary of the reading along with a prompt for conversation.

The Lord’s Supper (also known as the Eucharist or Communion) was established by Jesus when He observed the Passover meal with His disciples. The Lord’s Supper proclaims the gospel to ourselves and to one another.

  1. Emma Mosley says:

    I see God’s attribute of love in these passages. The fact that He has consistently spared His people and made a way out of destruction and despair.

  2. Jessica Trowell says:

    He is our sustenance. If we don’t spiritually feed on him, we are spiritually dead!

  3. Cathy says:

    I know we have a forgiving God who always, always wants us at his table ….not judging others beside us. We all equally can feast on his goodness. The Church must break through any challenges that keep us from loving all.

  4. Caitlin Bieniek says:

    Jesus is the way, truth, and light. He does this by asking us to take a part of him.

  5. Anna Pearce says:

    God provides for us in all ways. He always has and He always will.

  6. Hannah Brown says:


  7. Janie Diffly says:

    Provider and Protecter!

  8. Emma Simmons says:

    i also agree this shows the compassion he gives to his followers and believers that he can forgive and let us be new again

  9. Abigail B. says:

    The first attribute I think of is God is provider. First, God provided Jesus to rescue and redeem us, and also I find it so lovely that communion, and the Passover meal, is God feeding His people (Jesus said I am the bread of life). God fed His people before they were rescued from Egypt, and Jesus fed (and ate with) His disciples before He went to the cross. So God provides; He knows we need food to nourish and strengthen our Earthly bodies, and He provides what we need. Another attribute is God is deliverer; He rescues and saves His children.

  10. Patsy Coghlan says:

    I am reminded that our God is so loving He has prepared a way of salvation by sending His son to secure our salvation. Thanks be to God.

  11. Kayla Albritton says:

    I noticed that He is the bread of life! Psalms reminds us to taste and see that He is good!

  12. Munchkin says:

    God is loving. When He is reprimanding the people for not observing the Lord’s Supper correctly and with the wrong heart mind, He does it in a way that does not belittle anybody. He is guiding them to acting the way they should act. He is the great teacher.

  13. Saicha Crawford says:

    Hello She’s! I was reminded in today’s reading that Jesus is the Bread of Life and satisfies our hunger pains into all humanity. I so appreciated today’s reading as a reminder of what communion means and how it connects to Passover. So good!

  14. Melissa Mcronney says:


  15. Kylie Belshe says:

    He is so compassionate to make a way for us to come to Him and have relationship with Him. And when we partake of the Lords supper we get to remember His goodness, compassion, and the sacrifice He made.

  16. Cindy Hanna says:

    Loved the example Lexi. I was struck by the inclusion of the Exodus passage where they had to be dressed , ready for travel with sandals on their feet and staff in hand ready for the Lord’s Passover. This brought to mind all the times I’ve partaken of communion and how Jesus is the Passover lamb that I am filling myself with. I guess that means I am most focused on his coming

  17. Amy EB says:

    I noticed God’s faithfulness in today’s reading. Our pastor is Jewish and on Good Friday he taught us about Passover and the Seder meal. There is so much symbolism to remind us of the Lord’s covenant with Israel. They were saved by the blood of the lamb. But it was just a precursor to the new covenant between God and his people when Jesus came to be the perfect and blameless lamb who died for our sins. And we still take communion to remind us of his blood spilled for us and the salvation offered to us. God is faithful to keep the covenants with His people and to make a way for our salvation.

  18. Tasha Adams says:

    Love, grace, compassion, forgiveness.

  19. Adrianne says:

    I saw that God was so entrenched in his Son that Jesus made sure that his disciples knew that even in the present of times that the times of old must be recognized. Event with a new covenant being established with Jesus, he wanted the Church to acknowledge the covenant of old. That God was with his people then and now.

  20. Patricia Patton says:

    Thank you Lexi B. This helped me.

  21. Kimberly Orgeron says:

    Beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  22. Kristie Paradis says:

    I had a little uneasiness when reading John 6:47-58. I always look to other versions to get clarification when I am not understanding, but every version I looked at pretty much worded those verses the same way, that is usually not the case. However, Matthew 26:26-29 and 1 Cor. 11:23-29 gave me the clarification I needed! I obviously knew it is not Jesus’ actual flesh and blood He is referring to, but just those verses alone, I can see how some would perceive it that way! That is why I love God’s Word so much, a lot of it can be confusing or tricky to understand, but there are always other verses (along with other versions) that will explain away any confusion and will give clarification! Thank You, God!

  23. Kristie Paradis says:

    Great example, Lexi! Thank you for sharing!

  24. Charlotte Messier says:

    He wants to be a part of every part of our being-eat THIS bread and drink THIS cup so that He becomes a a part of our very cellular makeup!!

  25. Mary Harker says:

    Remembering what the Lord has done for us through Jesus.

  26. Angelica Ging says:

    He is Good. It makes me think back to creation back in Genesis when all was seen as “good.”!

  27. Claire B says:


  28. Antonette A says:

    As I read Exodus 12:13, I see God’s beautiful painting of salvation through the sacrificial death of our LORD Jesus Christ on the cross; that when God looks at us – His redeemed people, He sees us covered in Christ’s blood and robe of righteousness, passing us over from His righteous judgement and wrath. I am humbled and eternally thankful when I begin to think about this. I see God’s perfect love and His omniscience as He knows exactly what, how, and when to do the things that He does. His ways and thoughts are higher!

  29. Grayson Chatfield says:

    The attributes of God that were highlighted for me today were His mercy, His sacrificial love, and His desire to protect us. He is a reverent God and is Holy.

  30. Stephanie G says:

    God is generous in His loving kindness.

  31. Amanda Browning says:

    What a wonderful way of putting it Lexi! Thank you

  32. Melissa says:

    God is just but He is also merciful.

  33. Jennifer Anapol says:

    I see that God wants us to remember and not forget what he has done for us.

  34. Marisa Toomey says:


  35. Mercy says:

    What I saw today is that God is super longsuffering and He doesn’t choose the easy way out. He is willing to go through extreme suffering and extreme death for love. He spares not himself, not even his own body, used it as ransom to trade, willing to have it broken for love. He is my greatest super hero of all time, especially when He rose again (not at all showing off by hovering over the whole Jerusalem for all to see, but so tactful), He took back the life He laid down. Isn’t that such a class act? It’s the greatest love story for me, where tears are short lived, then a great twist, the predestined happy ending where no tears involved: God lives with His beloved forever – when all suffering/testing/trying has passed. Amazing God. Amazing story you and I get to live in!

    @Lexi: That is an awesome revelation that the Lord has shown you. Thank you so much for sharing!

    Be blessed dear sisters. Please remember that God is closer to us than a brother (Proverbs 18:24), you can share with Him anything and everything that you are going through. He is the greatest SUPERHERO that will bring you out (Psalm 34:19). Sending love and prayers across the pond to the faraway lands.

  36. C.J. Carter says:

    Good Father
    Giver of Life
    Promise Keeper

  37. MaryBeth Thomas says:

    Mercy, protection, desirous of loyalty, fondness for rituals of remembrance.

  38. Dorothy says:

    One of the attributes of God I noticed in today’s readings was God wanting to become one with me/us. I guess what I’m trying to say is that God and Christ want me/us to try to be more like them and remember them. The Lord’s Supper and Passover are two major celebrations in which we celebrate God, Christ and in a way the Holy Spirit. After reading what Paul said to the Corinthians in 1 Corinthians 11:17-29, it really opened up my eyes to how sacred the Lord’s Supper should be. I have always thought of it with reverence but that scripture made me realize just how much I/we can take certain items of our church service for granite.
    Lord remind us of how loving and great You are. We praise You for all You have done for us and given us. In the Son’s name, amen.
    Sisters be blessed and sing or shout PRAISES to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

  39. Taylor says:

    That’s one of the best ways to describe it Lexi. I had the same question too, and your comment really helped me. Also I want to say to keep being strong against those struggles. I struggle with them too. And you just have inspired me to keep going strong in Christ’s name.

    I hope you have a blessed day!

  40. Kimberly Ziehl says:

    Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!
    Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! – Psalms 34:8

  41. Leslie Orozco says:

    Unchanging, merciful, patient, full of grace

  42. Sara Simpson says:

    God is all-knowing (omniscient), and we are not. He gives his forgetful people these tangible, visual ways to focus and remember his goodness and provision. Thank you, Lord!

  43. Lexi B says:

    Jesus description of eating his flesh and drinking his blood to the crowd really stuck with me today. It left me with questions, but with further reading and prayer, my questions were addressed. (I am still processing so bear with me).
    I have always wondered why He did it that way. I kept saying to my self, “why eat?” Why that word? So I asked Jesus, to help me understand. He gave me this cool example:

    When you are starving and haven’t eaten, all you can think about is food. Your mind continously focuses on that. So once you see it, and possibly any form of it, you are going to devour it. You might make poor food choices because you’re consummed by your hunger and all you care about is satifying it.

    Sin can control you in the same way.

    But when you are full, you’re less likely to want to eat extra. You’re satisfied. I just ate breakfast, and the thought of eating another omlet right now is a bit repulsive, because I am full.

    He then went on to show me that we are to consume (eat) Him. Because when we are satisified and full of Him, we’re less likely to sin. Our flesh won’t be in control. Sinful things won’t entice us because we are full of Him. All the issues I struggle with, lust, anxiety, impatience, anger, self control…all that diminished when I am consumming Jesus, instead of my fleshly desires.

    My interaction with Him today makes me thankful that when I have questions, He is willing to help me understand.
    Thank you for allowing me to share this with you guys; love you all.

  44. Audren Bruszer says:

    I notice God’s power, willingness to sacrifice in today’s reading.

  45. Carol Crossman says:

    The attributes of God are mercy, protection, authoritarian and love.

  46. Carol Crossman says:

    The attributes of God are mercy, protection, teacher

  47. Tammy Hicks says:

    Protection. Jesus’ blood is his promise that he’ll pass over us when he judges the world just like he did with the Egyptians. It’s the ultimate sign of his love for us.

  48. Denise RICHIE says:

    Today’s scriptures reminded me that God never changes. He is consistant. As I reflect on remembrance I read that from the old testiment to the new He never sways from how we are to remember him. I know I allow life to get in the way of remembering God so today was a perfect reminder for me to slow down and acknowledge the Lord and all that he does for me.

  49. MARTHA HIX says:

    His holiness. Thank you Lord for your mercy and grace and for loving us. Thank you that you go before us and you know what this day will bring. ❤️

  50. Sharon, Jersey Girl says:

    God is good. God is our provider. Man sinned separating us from God, but God loved us and wanted to have a relationship with us. Because of our sin, that was impossible – except by the blood. God is so good. He wanted to make a way for us to be able to come into His presence so He provided a way – through the precious blood of Christ. Now all who believe may come to Him, nothing preventing us! Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord will provide! (Genesis 22:14) God is good! (1 Chronicles 16:34)

  51. Caroline Kelly says:

    I notice God’s self sacrificial love and abounding mercy for us. We do not deserve to receive Jesus, we are broken and hard to love, but God sees past our brokenness and welcomes us to the table again and again, sacrificing His very self for us.

  52. Caroline Kelly says:

    I notice God’s self sacrificial love and abounding mercy for us. We do not deserve to receive Jesus, we are broken and hard to love, but God sees past our brokenness and welcomes us to the table agai.

  53. Faith Magras says:

    That God is merciful but will bring judgement on those who disrespect him.

  54. Debbie -Pursued by Him says:

    I think God’s working in all the details for all time is so amazing!

    As I was reading, I wondered about the Passover and Jesus’s doing it with His disciples. I went to Gotquestions.org and researched the Passover. There were lots of pieces of very interesting information about how Jesus represented the Passover…or how the Passover represents Jesus! Oddly, I focused in on the wine. Jesus drinks two cups…and you know God is always about the details. So, here is what I found about the wine! Very interesting!
    “ There are also four cups of wine used at various points during the Seder. Each of these glasses of wine has a name: the first glass is the “cup of sanctification.” The second is the “cup of judgment.” The third is the “cup of redemption.” And the fourth is the “cup of praise.” At the Last Supper, Jesus took the first cup and promised His disciples that the next time He drank the fruit of the vine with them would be in the kingdom (Luke 22:17). Later in the Seder, Jesus took the third cup—the cup of redemption—and used that cup as a symbol of the New Covenant in His blood (Luke 22:20). Thus Jesus fulfilled the Passover symbolism and infused the whole feast with a new meaning.”

    Is anyone else blown away by God’s attention to details just so that we could understand His love for us?!!!!

  55. Annie Bergen says:

    At our ladies Bible study at church we just finished Breathe by Pricilla Shire. And one of the ways to rest/worship is to remember where we’ve come from. Communion is a beautiful act of remembrance of the sacrifice of Jesus and how our sins are forgiven through Jesus alone. I don’t know if I’ve appreciated looking back as much as I have now. Seeing how far God has brought me.

    God is holy, almighty, worthy of all worship. He’s our sustainer ❤️

  57. Annie says:

    The Lord is all we need. He sustains us – He is our sustenance.

    Thank You, God, for providing all that we need. Let Your church look to You and You alone for guidance, for strength, for protection, for everything we need.

  59. Kyler C. says:

    God is our provider and sustainer.

    I love the story of Passover and how God rescued his people from oppression and slavery. It is always such a good reminder that God will always come for those who are His and call out to Him.

  60. Angie Mills says:

    Again, I see His holiness and His relational aspect. He desires to be in relationship with us. He wants to nourish our bodies and souls and spirits, but we must let Him. If we partake of Him in any way that is not worthy of Him, we run the risk of bringing judgment on ourselves. Yes, God is loving and gracious and merciful and holy and just, all at the same time. The ordinances of the Lord’s Supper and baptism show these truths well.

  61. Erica Chiarelli says:

    Our God is a God of life. He keeps His promises forever. He sustains us, He is life giving. Our God is eternal and holy, set apart. And because of His love & Jesus’ sacrifice, we are free! We have life!

  62. Caroline Bridges says:

    The Lords kindness is something that we don’t always deserve. We get it regardless

  63. Kenya Rafferty says:

    I like the way of using communion ad Passover as a way of reflecting on a historical truth about sacrifice. And rejoicing in the fact that now we have the ultimate sacrifice forever when we commune with his body and blood.

  64. Jessica Waldren says:

    He is always with us, in everything we do, with grace and forgiveness ❤️

  65. Taylor says:

    Promise Keeper. Provider. Sustainer. More than enough.

    @Rhonda J I love the song “Jireh” too!

  66. P Blundell says:

    I see His love, patience, protection, mercy and care for us!

  67. Krystyn Carey says:

    Yes! So true. The Old is in the New revealed , and the New is in the Old concealed.

  68. Krystyn Carey says:

    I notice that our God is Provider. He gives us everything we need. And I also notice that He lives covenant and wants us to remain in Him.

  69. Rhonda J. says:

    At church this past Sunday I was surprised to learn that there are close to 1000 names for God in the bible that reveal different characteristics of his personality! The few ones that were spoken of were
    Jov- He is Good. God is Good all the time. All the time God is good.
    Yaweh- I Am. Relational. Unchanging.
    Yesuah- Jesus. Salvation.

    I personally love the song “Jireh.” Enough. More than Enough.

    He is everything we could want; Saviour, Comforter, forgiver, friend, advisor, king. Almighty and Powerful, Stern yet gentle, caring and loving. Hallelujah He is for us and forgiving. Oh Glorious day that will be!

  70. Lizzie says:

    He loves sacrificially ❤️!

  71. Riley McDiffitt says:

    I love how through Communion we can see God’s plan through the ages. Understanding how the events that took place in ancient Egypt, the Passover meal of Jesus’ time, and our communion today are all connected strongly reminds me that God has this huge, overarching, incredibly detailed plan for the world and His people. Which is very comforting and very exciting. All this also reminds me to invest in both the Old and New Testament because they are two parts one one story.

  72. Charlie says:

    Sustenance. Nourishment. Provision. Hope.

  73. Jennifer Cummings says:

    Holiness. The word holy means “set apart”, and this is so clear in these passages. God is set apart from all others, so utterly different from the gods of Egypt who could not save. And in Christ WE are set apart, to be a people who reflect Him.

  74. Stormi Messmer says:


  75. Jennifer Loves Jesus says:

    Sustainer. Provider. Giver of life. Nourisher. Protector. Purifier. Redeemer. As a father is to a child, I look to God for all things. To know God and who I am in relation to Him reveals my need for Him to sustain my life. Give us this day our daily Bread. Jesus sits at God’s right hand, freely giving the Bread and Wine. Life and salvation flows and covers me, protecting me from the destroyer. I remember what He has done, I see what He is doing now, and my hope is sealed in His return. Selah. Maranatha. Amen.

  76. Jillian says:

    Savior, Guide, Sacrifice, and Teacher

  77. Judy says:

    Full of grace and forgiveness.

  78. Aimee D-R says:

    Loving, holds His promise, just, merciful, giving

  79. Kathy Winstead says:

    We see God’s righteousness when we see our din. But we see His mercy and grace when we see the what He has provided for us through Jesus.

  80. Danielle B says:

    God is a provider and He is loving.

  81. Diana Davis says:

    Forgiveness and Redemption

  82. Kelly (NEO) says:

    God is faithful to do what He has promised

  83. Dana says:

    Teacher. Patient, Loving Teacher.

  84. Kristen says:

    I thought about part of the the song called, Remembrance https://youtu.be/APEQ8lsrY0c
