WORTHY TO REMEMBER After sharing some concerns about church conduct, Paul quoted Jesus concerning instructions “TO REMEMBER ME” [1 Co 11:24,25 IC]{Lk 22:19} by eating bread and drinking from the cup. Paul goes on to suggest that people can remember Jesus in an “unworthy manner” [1 Co 11:27] which has been used for years to prevent people from obeying Jesus by remembering Him. One of the statements Jesus made referring to the cup as remembering that His BLOOD IS POURED OUT FOR MANY TO FORGIVE THEIR SINS” [Mt 26:28 IC] and some have experienced forgiveness while remembering Jesus with the cup. Jesus never suggested we had to be sin free to remember Him or to come to Him. One of the first things Jesus did was to encourage people to, “TURN AWAY FROM YOUR SINS” [Mk 1:15 GN]. To suggest, that we have to be worthy or free from sin before we obey Jesus and remember Him, ignores that Jesus “MAKES YOU FREE” [Jn 8:36] from sin and from manmade teachings that interfere with obeying Jesus. In a similar way people make up rules to prevent children from remembering Jesus with the bread and the cup even though Jesus clearly stated “LET THE LITTLE CHILDREN COME TO ME, AND DO NOT FORBID THEM” [Lk 18:16 NKJ]. Everyone should feel free to remember Jesus without fear or guilt. Are you free to remember Jesus?
