REMEMBRANCE

He took some bread in his hands. Then after he had given thanks, he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is given for you. Eat this and remember me."

When reading something we all know all about how redundancy tends to set in and the main force of the subject matter tends to escape us.

Jesus knew that there are two things that happen to us all and that is, One, familiarity with anything reduces the impact it has on our life and Two, we tend to forget about it to one degree or another.

The birth, life, death, burial, resurrection and oh yes, the seating in heaven of Jesus should be the controlling force in our lives. Everything we are or hope to be should be a reflection of the Christ life.

That which is called "communion" is to be a reminder of all Christ has done for us and will do for us in our daily walk.  Perhaps it should stand alone instead of being tagged on at the end of a service and all aspects be unhindered by all the necessary requirements carried on in the main service itself.

The song's verse "Take time to be holy, speak oft with thy Lord" are words that encourage a time of introspection and the Communion service is needful for all Christians. It is a time of bonding, of correction, remembrance, fellowship and finding direction for the future.

One other thing it does is to keep Jesus' sacrifice for us in the forefront of our mind.
Mark 6:31Then Jesus said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.”

He said this because there were so many people coming and going that Jesus and his apostles didn't even have time to eat.

In our busy lives we need to get off by ourselves and have a time of communion and remembrance of Him.
