17 After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, “Take this and divide it among you. 18 For I tell you I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.”

19 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” (Luke 22:17-19)

There are many times that we remember throughout the year. Birthdays, anniversaries, and other significant occasions are celebrated in various ways. Cakes, meals, cards, flowers, etc. are ways that one may choose to express their sentiments. Celebration is about the other person and remembering them.

Jesus was teaching His disciples that they are celebrate Him and His sacrifice. Communion is how followers of Christ remember Him. He did not give how many times or how often. He just wanted it done. The bread represents His body and the fruit of the vine represents His blood. Jesus offered Himself once and for all to take away the sins of the whole world. Believers have received this good news and have their sins taken away to be remembered no more. They are wiped out.

Challenge: Believer, celebration of the Jesus ultimate sacrifice for sin is done to praise God in the Holy Spirit. Celebrate and Remember!
