Our wedding rings both have written inside them 'COME WHAT MAY', which was the song we walked down the aisle to and part of our promise to love each other whatever may come our way.
1 Corinthians 11:1-34
Reference: v.25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me." (NIV Bible)
Explore: When my husband and I got married I was keen for us to have the same looking wedding band. Sure, his wedding ring is quite a lot bigger than mine but we found a design that would suit us both. They are both white gold bands with a yellow gold strip down the middle. They both have written inside them 'COME WHAT MAY', which was the song we walked down the aisle to and part of our promise to love each other whatever may come our way. Our wedding rings are a reminder that we are commited to each other. Funnily enough it's not something I forget often or easily! I know that I'm married to Cameron but it's nice to have something that symbolises the commitment we made on our special day.
Application: When we join in taking Lord's Supper it is a reminder to us of the sacrifice Jesus made. If we are followers of Christ and constantly communing with Him in our lives, it may seem silly to have these particular elements to remind us of Jesus' sacrifice. But just like my wedding ring, it is important for us to partake in the symbols. When life gets busy and other priorities take top place, it's good for us to gather together, in whatever form or style, and celebrate the time when Jesus broke bread and drank wine. May it be a strong reminder for us that Jesus loved us so much He was willing to be totally broken for us.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for the amazing sacrifice you made. May we remember it regularly as we commit our lives to You. Amen.
How do you celebrate the Lord's Supper? What is meaningful to you about remembering Jesus' actions?
