Intimacy of Communion 

This Do In Remembrance Of Me   

     

When I was a young girl I remember thinking that the table with the inscribed words, "This Do In Remembrance Of Me," was associated with death. What I remember most is that every time someone died their body would be at the front of the church on that table. Or, so I thought it was. The wording was appropriate for the occasion seeing how someone had died and we were at a funeral remembering them.

 

To the mind of a young child it made perfect sense. People were wailing and crying, remembrances of their lives were being spoken and everyone was bidding their final farewells. This had to be the table where dead people were placed for communion tabletheir families to remember them. You have to remember that I grew up in a church where many things were not clearly explained. It was assumed that everyone knew what that table represented.

 

Interestingly enough, I knew about the true meaning of the table, but I didn't associate the true meaning with the table because my perceived application of the table was more prominent than its actual purpose. I was operating on misinformation of my own pre-conceived thoughts. As we celebrate Memorial Day in observance of fallen soldiers who fought and gave their lives in this country, which eventually emerged to include loved ones who had made their transitions from this world into eternity, it brought me back to that memory of the inscription on the table.

 

Not until years later, if I wasn't grown I was almost grown, that I made the connection about what the inscription on the table truly meant. In this maturation process I also realized that they didn't place the deceased bodies on that table at all. You see, my mind connected the wording and the height of the table with the riser where the coffin was set on. Oh the beauty of getting wisdom and understanding!

 

Now that inscription on the table has become the center of my life. "This Do In Remembrance Of Me" speaks volumes as to our walk with Christ. You see, Communion was and has always been sacred to me. We were taught that you need to have your heart right and your life in order to receive Communion. I knew that if I ever took it unworthily I would meet with some unexpected calamity. True, that is a bit extreme, but it reinforced the sacredness of the experience that resulted in increased reverence.

 

I refer to it as an experience because that is what it is all about. It is all about experiencing Christ in His fullness. It is all about embracing a lifestyle that catapults you into a realm of commitment that completely transforms your life. It brings into focus a relationship that is unparalleled and unprecedented by any other.

 

About six years ago I began receiving daily Communion; actually twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. No, I don't have a Communion Table erected in my house, but I do have one in my heart. You see, it is at the Communion Table where you begin to embrace Christ and it is also there where you make the decision to follow him closely; not a far off nor completely turn your back on Him. Everyone who takes Communion doesn't mean their heart is prepared to receive it.

 

It is the ultimate remembrance for me that symbolize His life, death, resurrection and return. It connects me to a force where I know that there are no limitations in this world that can prevent me from becoming all God envisioned. I am consumed with the limitless love that was demonstrated on the Cross so I could be completely free in a world full of oppression.

 

The beauty of it all is that it wasn't just for me, but everyone. This Memorial Day remember Him and in remembering Him you will come to know who God created you to be. This is the intimacy of communion.

SCRIPTURES

  

For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come. Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 1 Cor 11:23-30 (KJV)

 

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. 1 Tim 2:5-6 (KJV)

 

Waiting for the blessed hope and manifestation of the glory of our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ,  who did give himself for us, that he might ransom us from all lawlessness, and might purify to himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works; Titus 2:13-14 (YLT)

 PRAY


Father

 

As I enter into Communion with You, bless me never to follow a far off, deny You and even more to turn my back on our relationship. It is in this intimacy where I am consumed with the love that You gave to me in sending Your only son to give His life a ransom that I can be set free. You didn't have to do any of this but you did and for that I am forever grateful. "This Do In Remembrance Of Me" holds such significance in my life because I realize that all I do, I do to glorify You and Your Son. I realize that in glorifying You in all things it only propels me to experience the abundant life You envisioned for me before the foundation of the world. I love You.
 

Amen
