HE’S FORGOTTEN- COMMUNION MEDITATION


She was crazy. Everyone knew it because she had the habit of talking to herself in public and it was known that she believed she even talked to Jesus - and Jesus talked back to her. A new preacher came to town and, hearing of the crazy woman, thought that he might be able to make her face reality.

One day, as he saw her walking down the street he spoke to her and eventually got around to asking, "I hear you talk to Jesus."

"Yes," she replied. "Jesus and I talk for just hours and hours."

"Would you do me a favor?" the minister began. "Could you ask Him something for me?"

"Why of course," the old woman responded.

"Would you ask Jesus what the last sin was that I confessed to Him?"

"Certainly," she replied.

The next day, the preacher saw the crazy woman just down the street and so he approached her asked, "Well, did you talk to Jesus last night?"

"Why, I surely did," she squealed.

"What did He say was the last sin was that I confessed to Him?" the preacher coyly asked.

She smiled as she replied: "Why, He said He didn’t remember."


When we remember Jesus – He forgets our sins and cleanses from all unrighteousness. That’s what we do at communion-- we remember the righteousness of Jesus and the forgiveness of our sins.
