Communion Meditation: Memorial Place

Jawbone Hill is a memorial place. Everytime the people of Israel saw that place they would remember God’s acts for them. This table is also a memorial. It is a memorial meal. In bread, we learn that God was broken for us, and in wine, we learn that He was poured out for us. But we do not simply learn of his death in this meal. We learn also of his resurrection at this table. This is not the table of the hopeless, but the table of the hopeful. In bread, Christ is our unity. In wine, Christ is our firstfruits; our joy. This memorial reminds us and reminds our Lord that Sabbath rest is accomplished.
