No doubt, some will relate that when it comes time for the Lord's Supper, there is a sense of dread. What consists of "do this in remembrance of me"? It often involves picturing ourselves at the foot of the cross, seeing the spotless Lamb of God brutally killed in our place. It may cause us to tremble. It may cause us to weep. Surely this is an appropriate response. However, these feelings must not linger.
Read Galatians 3:6–14.
When remembering Jesus, we remember not just that He died, but also why He died. He died so we don't have to. He died to become our curse.
He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21
The Lord calls us around His table. As we gather, He commands us, “Do this in remembrance of Me” (1 Cor. 11:25). As I consider the great invitation to share in the blood and body of the Lord, I also share these thoughts with you. Perhaps, they will help you reflect.
