SYMBOLS OF REMEMBRANCE THE LORD'S SUPPER
Dr. Tim Richardson
A trip to my hometown last week brought back 2 remembrances. The two places are the old Snyder High School auditorium, and the Wichita Wild Life Refuge. Both these places brought back remembrances of 5 or more decades ago. The auditorium was the place of my graduation and I can remember vividly walking in there in my cap and gown at graduation. On the way back home, we drove by saddle mountain, Mears, and the Wichita Wild Life Refuge. The Wichita Wild Life Refuge brings back a memory and a picture of me sitting on one of the mountains in my cowboy hat.
1. The Symbol of the blood. Hebrews 9:12 and 14
These two places above were symbols of my childhood and teenage life. We come to two symbols that go back both 2000 years and for us to our time and place of being saved.
• The cup with the red liquid in it is to help us remember the blood of Christ - the blood that referred to at the Last Supper. That red color is to help to remember the blood.
• By his own blood v. 12
• The blood of Christ cleanses the conscience
• The blood is the picture of the new covenant v. 14
2. The Symbol of sacrifice. Hebrews 10: 10 and 12
Take the wafer that you have and crunch it in your fingers. The crack of that wafer is a sound of Christ’s broken body.
• We have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ v. 10
• When Christ had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins v. 12
3. The remembrance of salvation.
• Remember the place and time you were saved.
• Remember how you felt and how you prayed.
• Remember who may have helped you.
4. The remembrance of renewal/rededication.
• Remember another time when Christ’s death for you was so real again.
• Remember what brought that renewal.
• Remember where you were and how you felt.
• Remembering is something we need to do and love to do.
• Remember today what a difference Christ has made in your life today.
