Jesus paid the price for you and I. He separated Himself from the Father, took on the sins of the world, was physically beaten until death so that we could be free. One would think more believers would be appreciative for all that He’s done, but some have minimized the sacrifice.

The sacrifice is an old repeated story, therefore, it’s easy to not place any value in the One Who sacrificed His life for us. Where there is no value, there is no honor.

That’s why there can be people who call themselves believers living no differently than the world.

If we can constantly remind ourselves of the sacrifice that Jesus made on our behalf, we can consciously make an effort to live a holy life honoring the One Who paid it all.

We have that reminder through communion. When we take communion, we remind ourselves of what Jesus has done. That reminder should keep us focused on why we live a life differently than the world and why we make choices that force our flesh to comply with God’s will. It’s because of the price He paid.

Never forget or minimize the sacrifice of Jesus. It’s THE only reason we’re allowed to live such a blessed life today.

1 Corinthians 11:23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: that the Lord Jesus, on the night He was betrayed, took bread, 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.””  25 In the same way, after supper He took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
