IN REMEMBERENCE - Always on HIS mind

I have a dear friend, Harold Hein, he often brings me thoughts and concepts that need to ferment in my spirit before they become living truths. I guess I'm slow...but I don't grab onto every glib statement I hear from other Christians. They have to pass the test of time and scripture to become Rhema.

He said to me recently, the statement Jesus makes at the Last Supper "In remembrance of ME" is accurate as far as it goes..but that it should also be and perhaps is more accurately "I remember (am remembering) YOU".

That we are always on His mind. What Harold said is what Misty Edwards said in her song of a few years ago- Always on His Mind:
Lord, I will seek You
On my bed, think upon You
In the day, I'll dream of You
You're always on my mind
With my whole heart I'll love You
With my mind and my strength too
Waste my life searching for You
You're always on my mind
Though I'm poor and needy, the Lord thinks upon me
Though His name is Holy, I'm always on His mind - I'm always on His mind
Though I'm weak and lowly, the Lord thinks about me
Though He's high and lofty, I'm always on His mind - I'm always on His mind.
No matter how BIG God is in your mind, HE is infinitely bigger than that...and His being so big, so omnipotent, so omnipresent means that every hair on your hear, yea, every cell in your body is of importance to HIM and noted. Not one thing in your life changes without his note..Jesus said so. Matthew 10:28-31

You really are always on His mind. He can say to you as you take part in a communion service in the future, "In Remembrance of YOU".

And as we remember those who have gone before...let us not forget we TOO are THE ONE.

thanks, Gene, you are indeed many, and especially by God and Christ. My translation of the phrase in Lk.22:19 and1 Cor. 11 is this: "Keep doing this for MY remembrance" (that is, "for the purpose of My (Christ's) remembering you"). The Lord's Supper is total Gospel, a gift of grace, not simply an obedient act on our part. ... Thanks be to God.
