The remembrance of Christ


The remembrance of Christ

“This do in remembrance of me.” 
1 Corinthians 11:24

Suggested Further Reading: 
Luke 22:14-20

Our Saviour was wiser than all our teachers, and his remembrancers are true and real aids to memory. 
His love tokens have an unmistakable language, and they sweetly win our attention. 

Behold the whole mystery of the Lord’s table. It is bread and wine which are lively emblems of the body and blood of Jesus. The power to excite remembrance consists in the appeal thus made to the senses.

 Here the eye, the hand, the mouth find joyful work. 
The bread is tasted, and entering within, works upon the sense of taste, which is one of the most powerful. 

The wine is sipped—the act is palpable; we know that we are drinking, and thus the senses, which are usually clogs to the soul, become wings to lift the mind in contemplation. 

Again, much of the influence of this ordinance is found in its simplicity. How beautifully simple the ceremony is—bread broken and wine poured out. 

There is no calling that thing a chalice, that thing a paten, and that a host. Here is nothing to burden the memory—here is the simple bread and wine. 

He must have no memory at all who cannot remember that he has eaten bread, and that he has been drinking wine. 
Note again, the deep relevance of these signs—how full they are of meaning. 

Bread broken—so was your Saviour broken. Bread to be eaten—so his flesh is meat indeed. Wine poured out, the pressed juice of the grape—so was your Saviour crushed under the foot of divine justice: his blood is your sweetest wine. 

Wine to cheer your heart—so does the blood of Jesus. 
Wine to strengthen and invigorate you—so does the blood of the mighty sacrifice.

For meditation:

 We forget him when we absent ourselves from his table without good cause; we forget him when we attend the Communion Service as an optional add-on. 
“Remember Jesus Christ” (2 Timothy 2:8).

 If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, 
you can be accepted into his kingdom. 
 I invite you to let him to make of you what He always wanted. 

"PRAYER" 
Marvelous God Almighty, 
 I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, 
who died for me to make me free of sin, 
 I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free.
 I confess that He is the son of God.
 I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value,
 not only to live on this earth, 
but to be expectant of my life in heaven.
 In the precious name of Jesus I ask. 
Amen..

“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie, 
 not in its fashion and manner, 
but in the truth which it contains.”
