Communion Exhortation - 12/16/07
Our Lord asks us to do this in remembrance of Him. I have spent some time this past week listening to people share memories of loved ones that have left us here and gone to glory. We are separated from them, and so cling to memories. The remembering is part of what ties us to heaven. What was it that led God to send us the Christ? He remembered His covenant with us. As He remembered us, He calls us to remember Him. Memories define the relationship b/t those who are separated for a time. God renews and refreshes us in our relationship with Him as we remember. And one of the things we remember is that the separation is only temporary.
