Human beings are eccentric by Pastor Ed Young
Human beings are eccentric. We love to celebrate milestones and markers and memorials. Plants and animals don’t really do that. My dog Dominick is twelve years old, and he has never wept over the fact that we forget his birthday every June. When our houseplants die, the other houseplants in the neighborhood don’t come over and mourn and weep and cry as they attend a houseplant funeral. Only human beings do things like that. Anniversaries, weddings, graduations—these events, these celebrations matter to us. And Ed Young Pastor believe the spirit that is deposited inside of all of our lives to celebrate milestones and markers is definitely placed there by the hand of God.
God instructs us to remember Him. He says, remember me through baptism. That illustrates my Son’s death, burial, and resurrection. He also said, remember Me regularly when you take communion. Don’t come to the Lord’s table flippantly or nonchalantly. Don’t laugh or joke around when you are baptized. This is serious stuff packed with spiritual meaning.
Communion. Ed Young Ministries states that Jesus in Luke 22 gathered His disciples together with Him. In a couple of hours, He would be arrested and then pay the price on Calvary and rise three days later. After the meal, though, Jesus does something that is really kind of unique and radical and strange. He grabs a loaf of bread and breaks it and gives the pieces to the disciples. Then He takes the cup and hands out wine to the disciples. He says that the bread represents His body which will be broken for them. The wine represents His blood which will be spilled for their sins. Then He said these words in Luke 22:19, “Do this in remembrance of Me.” Eat the bread, drink the juice in remembrance of Me.
I bet His followers thought why was Jesus worried about them forgetting Him, they never could. Jesus was that faith-talker, water-walker, miracle-worker. They knew they wouldn’t forget Him, He was their Lord, the Son of God.
Fathers, we have got to make a choice. We have got to make a call today, because the marketplace screams for our attention. “Ah ha, ah ha, come this way because if you follow the marketplace you will have parties, perks and promotions.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved.
