“Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of His grace. And your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God’s grace. Every day should be a day of relating to God on the basis of His grace alone.” Jerry Bridges
Through-out our life there are a number of stages, the start, the middle and then end. Our spiritual journey begins at the cross. We can live life so full because Jesus died for us – at the start of all things.
Have you realized that the Israelites of old built altars whenever they had an encounter with God? The altars represented a spiritual event that was significant in their lives.
Similarly, we all have spiritual altars. They mark significant events in our lives. Today, we give it a fancier name. It’s called milestones. Milestones are not meant for us to relish in past glory but to remind us that God can work that same miracle in your life time and time again.
1 Corinthians 11:23-24 is the passage we often read at communion. It’s all about remembering what Jesus has done. Communion is about going back to the start of all things and remembering what God has done for us. That’s why Christ says Do this in remembrance of me. It doesn’t matter what stage of life we are at or if we are going through a time of blessing or trail. It ie really important we remember the things God has done for us.
Communion is also a time when we revisit the spot where our spiritual journey first took place – the foot of the cross. When we do that, we can look at our journey of life in a better perspective. Because we remember what Christ did for us – he lay down His life.
James 1v17 “Whatever is good and perfect comes to us from God above.” When we internalize this, can live our everydays relating to God on the basis of His grace alone.
