Memorials are set up in honor of those who have died. Jesus instituted a memorial of Himself to remind us of His sacrifice, His love, His commission and His return. He knew His children would need help to remember. His blood covers our sin and that is represented in the juice of a grape, the fruit of the vine. His body suffered beatings and excruciating pain until He died, and that is represented in the bread. God raised Jesus from the dead, and He lives today! Jesus is the Vine, and He is the Living Bread. Praise God for this memory of His Resurrected Son and anticipation of His promise to return.
