Living It Out
Humans are great at forgetting (unless your parents owe you money, then you never forget). Jesus knew this, which is why He had a massive banquet with His followers, just before He left them, where they ate bread and drank wine together to remember what Jesus’ mission on earth was all about. The church you attend probably participates in a simple, but important, version of this event, which today is usually called communion or The Lord’s Supper. The simple act of taking communion is meant to be a powerful reminder of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. We are sheep. We are good at forgetting. Some people tie a string on their finger as a reminder of something important.
What’s something you can wear, or pin to your backpack, or write on your hand, that will help you remember how badly you need the Good Shepherd--today and every day?
