The Remembrance Cup

Good morning!

My oldest daughter was at our home last Sunday evening in celebration of my dad’s 88th birthday. Before we joined together in breaking bread, I opened in prayer. After praying, my daughter asked me if I’d like to take communion. My reply, thinking she was kidding, was, “Sure, did you bring the wine?” Then she plopped this little diddy on the table.

Well, I’ll be! The Lord’s Supper to go! Now I’ve seen everything!

A compact little individually packaged communion bread/juice set. Perfect for those that can’t get out to Sunday services. She serves at South Tulsa Lifechurch where it originally came from.

My three year old granddaughter quickly and ever so confidently piped in and told me, “Grandy, it’s not wine. It’s Jesus’s blood. And his body.

She doesn’t miss a beat. Nor should we. Communion is found 43 times in the New Testament. That’s worthy of remembrance. We should always remember what Christ did for us. He gave his blood and his body for us. In exchange for our sin.

The next time they offer communion at your church or someone brings it to you, take time to remember. Remember what Christ did for you and for me. And thank him.

This is my body given for you, do this in remembrance of me. Luke 22:19

Love and laughter,

Sandy
