Remember pt. 3

This past weekend in Junction 567 (part of Uptown our children’s ministry at  Mt. Zion Ministries) our lesson focused on communion.  The main idea we were trying to communicate was that communion helps me remember what Jesus did for me.  I remember reading a commentary by William Barclay who said that Jesus knew we would need help remembering.  He knew that we would get caught up in life and the things we can’t explain or just plain frustrate us.  Life happens and many times we just get consumed with what is happening.  It is in these moments that partaking in communion can be so powerful.   

When we take communion it forces us to stop.  It forces us to stop and remember what exactly has been done for us.  It forces us to stop and remember that even though everything else in life may be going crazy there is something that we can be grateful for.  It forces us to remember how great our God is and how much He loves us.
