In Luke 22:19 we read’Do this in remembrance of me.’ Nowadays this supper and instruction goes under various names ‘Breaking of Bread, Eucharist, Last Supper, or Communion depending on the type of church where we worship. Whatever the title the ceremony is still remembering our Lord and His sacrifice for us. We read the account of this meal firstly in Luke 22:7-23 and again in 1 Corinthians 11:17-34 .

This is a covenant between God, us and each other which is good when we actually take the elements together. Without the shedding of blood there is no healing. Jesus had to shed His blood for our healing. Love and justice meet at the cross.

There are times when we make the ceremony something we have to do when all that is necessary is to receive. As requested we need to remember. This service is a reminder. There are not many commands that Jesus gives us, but this is one ‘Do this in remembrance of me.’
