I put it off for a while, but I finally made a life change that is a concession to my forgetfulness. I started putting my daily medication in a pill box that helps me remember if I have taken my meds for that day. Once a week I place the pills in the compartments—Monday through Friday—AM and PM. Now I don’t find myself trying to remember at mid-morning whether or not I have taken my morning meds.
Jesus has given us a weekly reminder so that we will not forget the gospel message. The Lord’s Supper helps us remember the death and resurrection of Jesus. He died to pay for our sins. He arose triumphantly from the grave to reign forever. Communion helps us remember.
“…Do this in remembrance of me.”—Luke 22:19
“On the first day of the week we came together to break bread…”—Acts 20:7
