Two Sundays ago, our church enjoyed sharing the Lord’s Supper. In obedience to His command, we ate bread and drank from the cup in order to remember Jesus’ sacrifice of Himself. As we looked at the Communion elements, the table and the Cross, and we ate and drank, we tasted and saw that the Lord is good. I am thankful that God gave us such a gift – the gift of a very tangible method to remember. Each time we gather at the table, we are driven to recall the cost of our sin and the love of Jesus through whom we receive forgiveness for that sin.
Reminders serve a very important role – especially in the lives of us forgetful people. In the busyness of life, methods of recall prove helpful. God gave believers the Lord’s Supper. He also gave the Church. As believers gather together weekly, we are reminded again of God’s love as well as the importance of worshiping God, gathering with others, and dedicating time to focus intently on Him.
I encourage you to participate in these actions and activities; they will serve as helpful reminders of what is truly important in life.
