Don’t Forget – Luke 22:1-23
Read Luke 22:1-23
I love Mark Labberton’s description of communion in his book The Dangerous Acts of Worship: Living God’s Call to Justice. Labberton writes, “We are invited to eat and drink at this table with others who, like us, are not worthy to be there. We do not deserve to be invited, and we would not necessarily have chosen the others at the table with us.” The poor, the rich, the powerful, the oppressed, the abled, the differently abled, the persecuted, and the sinful are all invited to come to the table to eat, drink, and remember.
Don’t forget that God’s love for you is perfect. There is nothing you can do to make God love you any more or any less. Don’t forget that God loves you more than you will ever love yourself. Come to the table, not because you must, but because you may.
Creator of the universe, very few of us have ever experienced love with no strings attached. Help me to grasp a deeper reality of your love today. Amen.
