These words are inscribed on most all communion tables in churches around the world. One of my childhood memories is staring at those word written on the table where the beautiful flower arrangements were centered. The table where the golden offering plates sat. Now it seems the table was for everything except communion.(once every month or so). But the words were still there to remind us to remember Him. We are surrounded by reminders in our day by day lives. We have our "to do list", our strings around the finger to remind us of important things in our lives. Fear surrounds those who forget their spouse's birthday or their anniversary! How much more should we remember what Jesus did on the cross for us as we take Communion and not to be part of some ritual? As we take the bread think about what His body looked like and the pain He took for Us. Think of the holes in His hands, feet, side and head. Think of the bruises and the stripes on His back. All had a meaning, remember His suffering for YOU. LUKE 22:19 AND HE TOOK BREAD, AND GAVE THANKS,AND BRAKE IT, AND GAVE UNTO THEM, SAYING, THIS IS MY BODY GIVEN FOR YOU: THIS DO IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME.
IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t
