Lord's Day communion

WILLIAM MANCHESTER IN his memoir about the Pacific conflict of World War II wrote of how "abruptly the poker of memory stirs the ashes of recollection and uncovers a forgotten ember, still smoldering down there, still hot, still glowing, still red as red..."
Remembering Israel's experience in Egypt, the disciples and Jesus celebrated the Passover, one of God's many memory devices.  The Passover lamb reminded Jews of the animal blood poured out to protect their lives in Egypt.  Because Jesus was the true Passover Lamb, He chose new symbols, the fruit of the vine and unleavened bread, for his tortured body and shed blood.
God knows we have short memory spans; that's why He creates unforgettable memory aids.  Yet sometimes we become indifferent to them or deliberately ignore them, allowing spiritual senility to set in. 
Those concerned about forgetfulness fight it with attentive minds that meditate on who God is and what He has done.  Graduates of God's memory school think about Jesus each Lord's Day during communion.  They see red as red.
"And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed it and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, 'Take, eat; this is my body.'  Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them saying, 'Drink from it, all of you.  For this is My blood of the new covenant which is shed for many for the remission of sins."  Matthew 26:26-28
