Do This in Remembrance
Calendars are usually filled with important events that we are not supposed to forget. The children of Israel’s “calendar” was no different. It contained many events that God wanted them to celebrate, such as Passover, which commemorated being delivered from the bondage of Egypt. Likewise, as believers God instructs us to remember the most significant event in history—His sacrifice for us on the cross—through a frequent celebration of communion.
“And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and broke it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; for this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins” (Matthew 26:26–28).
