Christian Dim Sum – That is the difference – Remember

We celebrate Holy Communion once a month at church. I am one of the stewards who distribute the elements, symbols of the Body and Blood to the particpants. I notice that there are various kinds of church attendees.

1. The earnest ones who really celebrate the Lord’s table remembering to confess sins, pray for the emblems, giving thanks to the Lord for salvation, healing and then rejoicing that He will return soon to take His Bride home.

2. The “sleepyhead”s who nonchalently take the emblems, and partake of them as a routine without remembering the significance of the Lord’s table. It is meaningless participation as their thoughts are really far away in dreamland or on the golf course

.3. Those who are seat-warmers and  have been attending church for many moons, who refrain taking the elements, knowing the warning and consequence  that if they are not ready to partake, they should refrain from it because they have not accepted salvation or because they remain defiled by sins not confessed.

What does Holy Communion mean to you? How long has it been since you last participated at the Table?

23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the samenight in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said,“Take, eat;[a] this is My body which is broken[b] for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 25 In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes. 1 Corinthinans 11:22-26

Do you remember? It will make a difference to your conviction, commitment and  your Christian walk. Will you be ready for His coming? Communion does cause you to reflect periodically to get yourself ready for the Rapture – will you be caught unawares?

  3. I think of words from James Montgomery’s hymn –

    Gethsemane, can I forget?
    Or there Thy conflict see,
    Thine agony and bloodied sweat,
    And NOT remember Thee?

    When to the cross I turn my eyes
    And rest on Calvary,
    O Lamb of God, my Sacrifice,
    I MUST remember Thee!

    Remember Thee and all Thy pains,
    And all Thy love to me:
    YES! While a breath, a pulse remains,
    I WILL remember Thee!

      Yes, it cost Him so much. How can we forget? Yet we do and must be constantly reminded as we take it for granted. The Lord knew when He instituted the Lord’s Supper.
      Thanks for your comments Cloudwatcher.

      Steve, many forget that the Ordinance of the Holy Communion is to help the believer to affirm his beliefs. Frequent affirmations help one keep the faith and to be thankful and appreciative of the work of Christ accomplished in the lives of His own. It also reminds him of the hope to come. It also is done in the fellowship of believers so each one is assured he is not alone in belief. but in a crowd of many witnesses. It is for our good not God’s. Thank you for your support.

        As always, wonderful words from you, conveyed by your total surrender to Christ. What an example. You’re in my cloud of witnesses, forever. God bless you.
