“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.””
As we look back over the year that has passed, there are probably many things that you would want to remember and many things you would like to forget. Our lives are a constant journey, learning more about God’s grace with each new day and more about who God has made us to be. Yes we may have made many mistakes and done things which we regret but God’s mercies are new each morning and everyday is a new gift from God. His grace is more than sufficient in our weakness’ and His love truly does cover a multitude of our sins.
The one thing that remains consistent throughout our memories is the fact that Jesus came to this earth, lived a sinless life, was crucified for our sakes and rose again on the third day, defeating death and sin. We remember this by partaking in ‘communion’, which stands a symbolism of what Jesus did for us by sacrificing His body and shedding His blood.
The great news is that Jesus’ life, death and resurrection is ‘GOOD NEWS’ all year round. It is the constant in a changing world and the foundation on which our faith is built. Moreover, as another year comes to an end, it is a fantastic opportunity to re-align ourselves to Christ being the focal point in our lives and the path that we can follow for a new year.
