And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.”Luke 22:19-20 ESV
The Christmas season as a tradition is a great remembrance of Jesus Christ. How are we remembering Him? What does it mean to remember Him? Is He just a memory of things long past? The Greek word for remembrance is anámnēsis.
anámnēsis (from anamimnḗskō, “bring to mind”) – deliberate recollection, done to better appreciate the effects (intended results) of what happened; active, self-prompted recollection especially as a memorial (memorial sacrifice)
This Christmas season let’s continually bring to mind every aspect of Jesus. Let’s be deliberate and intentional so that we better appreciate the intended results of Jesus’ birth, life, death, resurrection, present enthronement, and coming return. He was, He is, and He will be forever! Just as we sacrifice to give gifts to others for Christmas, let’s make this entire season a memorial sacrifice to Jesus, the Living King. Our sacrifice is to continually remember Him. Our remembrance is worship.
This Saturday Wellspring will worship together, receive communion together, and fellowship together over a meal. And in all of this, Jesus Christ will be in the center. Join us Saturday at 5pm!
