This Do in Remembrance of Me

Above:  Part of the Original Text

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Lk. 22, 19b

This is my body which is given for you:  this do in remembrance of me.

I.  

Instituted by the Lord.  The church should remember him and his sacrificial love.  He is our only hope.

II.

“In remembrance of me.”  We owe all to him and we are complete in him.  Surely then we will remain humble.

A memorial:

(1)  Not of the church through we should love it.  Without him there would be no church.

(2)  Not of our fellow church members–not with the thought of what he may be or do.

(3)  Not of anything we have done.  These cannot make us worthy to come.  “When ye have done all say, “We are unprofitable servants.”

(4)  Of him.  Let our thought be of him, our prayer made to him, our faith rest on him.

Let us seek communion with him, seek his grace, the hidden manna of the soul.
