Remember me when you
come into your kingdom.
Jesus gave his disciples the bread to eat and the cup to drink: “Do this in remembrance of me,” he said (1 Cor 11:24, 25). From that time on the Lord’s Supper would be a relevant ritual of remembrance.
Confessing that he was being punished justly and Jesus unjustly, the criminal who was crucified beside the Lord entreated him, “Remember me when you come into your kingdom.” Jesus told him he would.
When we come to the table, there is a double remembrance . . .
“Remember me” when you come here, Jesus says. And we do.
“Remember me” when I come here, we say. And he does.
Considering the price he paid for you,
there isn’t the slightest chance that he will forget you.
