In Remembrance of Me

Today my thoughts are turned towards what we call the Lord's Supper. How is it that a meal with Jesus and his closest friends affects in the year 2009? It was more than a meal it was a symbol of what Jesus would do as He poured out His life's blood on Calvary. It was a fulfillment of prophecy as He celebrated the Passover with His disciples, but it was so much more. Think of is this way.

Jesus broke the Bread: His body would be broken so that we might be healed and whole

Jesus blessed the Bread: His body would be the vehicle of the redemption and the blessing of mankind

Jesus poured the Cup: His blood would be poured out on the Cross for the forgiveness of sins

Jesus drank the Cup: He accepted the cup of death, so that you and I would have life.

So the next time you celebrate Communion, remember the price that Jesus paid for your redemption.
