Do this in remembrance of me.
Why would Jesus ask his followers to take a peice of bread and some juice and remember him?
Was he afraid they would forget?
I forget things all the time. I can get up, walk into a room and completely forget what I was doing. I forget passwords, dates, conversations… The list goes on and on. I could see why we might need to be reminded to remember.
But something Bryan Schackmann asked in a class at church got me thinking a little more about this. He asked if Jesus lives inside us?
It can be a scary question if you were to answer it honestly. Is Jesus really a part of me?
And is that true all the time?
I don’t know that we, followers of Christ, ever COMPLETELY forget about Jesus, but we may not always live as though we remember him.
When we take the bread and juice in communion with each other and God we need to remember that Jesus is a part of each of us. Living in us.
