On this Memorial Day weekend we are reminded that freedom is never free. On a recall when we recall the sacrifice of those who gave their lives in military battle, we are also reminded of what Jesus did on our behalf. He willingly gave His life in order to secure for us inward freedom and peace with God. Freedom is never free. On the night before Jesus went to the cross, He established a memorial remembrance that has come to be called the Lord’s Supper. As we reflect on that evening when Jesus gathered with his disciples around a table in an upper room in Jerusalem, we come to see that He insistently wanted us to regularly remember Him and this sacrifice He offered on our behalf. There is value in remembering – regularly, deliberately remembering that which is most important.
