Lord’s Supper service

3rd quarter – September 2016

“Do this to remember me”

Psalm 66

John 1:7

Matthew 7:12

James 2:14-20

Luke 23:42-43

1 Corinthians 11:23-26

Remembering is an important part of being a human being and it is also an important part of being a follower of Jesus Christ

We sometimes have some usual ways of remembering simple things

Some tie a string around their finger

Others use sticky notes

In this modern age the use of voice recorders and alarms are common

These are for remembering things

We also remember events in many ways

We honor our men and women who have served and are serving in our military on veteran’s and Memorial Day

With parades

Flags

Cookouts

Speeches

We remember the founders of our country on president’s day with a day off from work and more speeches and ceremonies

For our remembrance of our freedom

We celebrate with Fireworks and more cookouts

Time with family

Parades

We also remember individuals in our lives who we love and had relationships with

Father’s day comes with tools, sporting goods etc

Mother’s day with flowers, cards and dinners

Valentines with Chocolate hearts and more flowers

We remember

We also remember those in our lives who have passed on

Crosses on the side of the road

Memorials such as a dedicated pew or donation to an organization

Flowers on graves

Pictures on walls

Naming children and grandchildren after a lost loved one

All of these things are differ ways of remembering

Today is our quarterly Lord’s Supper service

Jesus said

Do this to remember me

To remember me

So we must ask

How do we remember Jesus?

I mean really remember Jesus

Scripture shows us all through the Old Testament and The New Testament

How we remember

Today

I would like to point out a few ways that we can remember and honor Jesus

How we can remember his sacrifice

How we can remember his love

How we can remember how he pulled us out of the mad and muck of our old lives

And redeemed us

By his Perfection

Not our own

It is amazing that God the Son would sacrifice his life

But the fact that he gave his life while we were still sinners is beyond our limited human ability to completely understand

And

Still it is important that we remember

I told you many ways that we remember many thing, events and people

In order to tell you that we need to remember Jesus in many ways as well

Jesus says in 1 Corinthians 11:24-25

Do this to remember me when he is giving instructions on the Lord’s Supper also known as communion

So today

I want to discuss some ways that we truly remember

The first is our

Worship

Psalm 66:1-7

Shout joyful praises to God, all the earth!

2 Sing about the glory of his name!

Tell the world how glorious he is.

3 Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!

Your enemies cringe before your mighty power.

4 Everything on earth will worship you;

they will sing your praises,

shouting your name in glorious songs.” Interlude

5 Come and see what our God has done,

what awesome miracles he performs for people!

6 He made a dry path through the Red Sea,[a]
