Thought for the week
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.”
