Remember Him

  1Corinthians 11:23-26 (NLT)

23 “For I pass on to you what I received from the Lord himself. On the night when he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread 24 and gave thanks to God for it. Then he broke it in pieces and said, “This is my body, which is given for you.[a] Do this to remember me.” 25 In the same way, he took the cup of wine after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant between God and his people—an agreement confirmed with my blood. Do this to remember me as often as you drink it.” 26 For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are announcing the Lord’s death until he comes again.”

While we wait for the Lord’s second coming, we have a tradition called communion that helps us remember Him. Whenever we break bread together as believers this is part of the implicit exchange. We are thankful for His sustenance but more than that, we are grateful for His provision that made us right with the Father for all time. His body and His blood are precious because of the abuse He endured for our atonement. God’s covenant (our daughter, Berit’s name is based on the Hebrew word for covenant or promise) has provided our redemption (Gail is Berit’s middle name which also comes from the Hebrew – a word for redeemed). God provided a way to redeem our sin and this is His lasting agreement or promise! -Teresa
