How good is your memory? What do you remember from when you were a kid, and how far back into your childhood does your memory go? Do you remember when you took your first step or what it was like the first time you went to Church? There are so many things that we forget and as crazy as it seems forgetting things helps us remember things that are more important. The best way to remember important event and facts is to make it a practice of thinking about them on a regular basis. Without purposely recalling important memories or information they gets filed away and forgot about. This is the reason God tells us to memorialize important events, such as the Passover with the children of Israel which was a yearly reminder for them to remember their deliverance from Egyptian bondage. The Passover meal was also a time for them to teach and emphasize to their children how important faith in the one and true living God is. If they failed to teach their children of the wondrous works of God, it would mean a complete breakdown of the most important aspect of their life. If one generation drops the ball and fails to teach the next generation a whole nation can quickly become pagans who eat, sleep, and rise up to play, while living their life with about as much purpose as a dog, cat, or any other spiritless beast.
This is the reason Jesus tells us to practice the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper, that we might always remember His sacrificial death, burial, and resurrection. We do this in remembrance of Him and to forever keep before us our hope and purpose of life. So today we invite you examine your life and turn from anything that may hinder you from living a completely sold-out life for Christ.    
Your Pastor, Rev. Wayne Marcus
