Arron Chambers recently spoke at “Summer in the Son”, a conference for teenagers at Kentucky Christian University. He mentioned a relative of his who had suffered from Alzheimers disease. It was sad to see her slowly slip away as she gradually lost her memory. He likened it to losing your grasp of a helium balloon and having it hover just out of your reach and then slowly drift away.
Jesus gave us a beautiful reminder of what he did for us on the cross when he instituted the Lord’s Supper. Communion helps us to remember Jesus’ sacrificial death, so that we won’t drift away from him.
