“Do this in remembrance of Me.” Luke 22:19
Come, my soul; obey your dying Lord’s command. Let it be your delight, as it is your privilege, to attend your Master at His table, to take a nearer view of His bleeding love; and by a renewed act of faith, obtain a fresh taste and renewed pledge of the precious benefits contained therein.
Stagger not through unbelief. It is a blessed truth: Jesus died for sinners. This is the foundation of a sinner’s hope. Let this encourage you, O my soul! You are a sinner guilty and denied. The blood of Jesus cleanses from all sin. He is the Fountain opened for your impurity.
- You are by nature a child of wrath, condemned by the law, exposed to the curse. But Jesus was made a curse for you.
- You are unrighteous, unholy. But Jesus is made of God unto you Righteousness and Sanctification.
- You are weak, beset with enemies. But His strength shall be perfected in your weakness, and you, by faith, shall be more than a conqueror through Him that loved you.
- You are afraid of perishing at the last. But look to Jesus. He purchased you with His blood. He will not give you up. And none can pluck you out of His hand.
Rise, then, O my soul, and come to the banquet of love and partake of the blessings of the everlasting covenant. Beseech the Lord to manifest His love and seal your pardon, renew your strength, and enable you to travel the remaining part of your pilgrimage, until you come to Mount Zion and be admitted a welcome guest at the marriage-supper in Heaven.
