Yesterday a lady from our dentist’s office called to remind my wife and me that we have appointments today. And this morning, an automated call from my doctor’s office reminded me that I am scheduled to see my family physician on Monday morning.
These friendly reminders are necessary for many people because we have busy schedules and we tend to be forgetful.
The Lord’s Supper is a friendly reminder that we have an appointment with Jesus, and with our brothers and sisters in Christ. It is an appointment to meet together for the purpose of honoring Jesus, remembering the love that he has for us—love that took him to the cross where he paid the price for our sins.
“On the first day of the week we came together to break bread…”—Acts 20:7.
