Thought for the week

The Oban Times - - News -

LUKE 22:19 ‘Je­sus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, say­ing, “This is my body given for you; do this in re­mem­brance of me.’

When we come to the com­mu­nion, we re­mem­ber Je­sus say­ing ‘Do this in re­mem­brance of me’. We think of all he did dy­ing on the cross, dy­ing for our sins, in our place. When we come to know him as Lord and Saviour we are promised eter­nal life. This pas­sage has been a source of in­spi­ra­tion and re­newal for many down through the years. As we met on Ar­mistice Sun­day many of us were re­mem­ber­ing what so many of the forces who fell or were wounded in ac­tion did so that we may have our in free­dom. That Bi­ble pas­sage al­ways touches my heart as I re­mem­ber my Dad who was killed in ac­tion on 1 Novem­ber 1944. As I stand at the ser­vice at Spean Bridge Com­mando Me­mo­rial you can al­ways pic­ture the many who fell or have died since. In the si­lence you can al­most hear them ask­ing ‘Will you re­mem­ber what we did?’ We will re­mem­ber them RE­MEM­BER THEM.”

Bill Har­vey, Com­mando Vet­er­ans As­so­ci­a­tion.
