“And He took a cup, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them saying, Drink of it, all of you.” Matthew 26:27 (Amplified)
Throughout scripture we see over and over that Jesus always gave thanks for what He received. In this verse He is speaking of His blood that would be sacrificed for us. Even in that He gave thanks to God that He was able to do this for us. Let us be sure to follow Him in giving thanks for ALL things, when we accept Him as our Savior and substitution for the punishment of our sins.
