LUKE 22:19 NLT 19 He took some bread and gave thanks to God for it. Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples, saying, "This is my body, which is given for you. Do this to remember me."
Not only were these some of the last words of our Lord Jesus on earth, but they are the heart cry of every human: remember me. We all have a desire to be of value, to be significant, to be judged as someone important -- at least to someone.
Jesus -- in addition to everything else He is -- is also human.
As Jesus faced the enormity of the task ahead of Him, He told His little band of followers: Remember me! Don't let my life and my sacrifices be in vain. Don't forget about me!
Do you remember? Or, have you forgotten?
Is Jesus at the forefront of your thoughts each day? Or, do you forget about Him -- most of the time.
Do you walk and talk with Jesus? Or, does your life give no testimony to your belief in Him?
Do you live as if Jesus did not redeem you? Are your days lived just as if Jesus never existed? Do you neglect to remember Jesus except on Sunday, or Christmas?
Probably all of us have fallen short in this area. But the Lord is gracious and it is never too late to change.
SAY THIS: I will never forget Jesus.
