This Do In Remembrance

When a US Navy vessel arrives or departs from the military bases in Pearl Harbor, the crew of that ship lines up in dress uniform. They stand at attention at armís length on the outer edges of the deck, in salute to the soldiers, sailors, and civilians who died on December 7, 1941. It is a stirring sight, and participants often list it among the most memorable moments of their military career.

Even for spectators on shore, the salute triggers an incredible emotional connection, but especially between the servants of today and the servants of yesterday. It grants nobility to the work of todayís sailor, while giving dignity to the sacrifice of those from the past.

When Jesus instituted the Lordís Supper (Matt. 26:26-29), it was surely with an eye toward creating this same kind of emotional bond. Our participation in the Lordís Table honors His sacrifice while also granting us a connection to Him unlike any other act of remembrance.

Just as the Navy carefully prescribes the way it salutes the fallen, so too Scripture teaches us how to remember Jesusí sacrifice (1 Cor. 11:26-28). These acts of reverence and thanksgiving serve to honor past action while giving purpose to present service.



Action Suggestion:
Read with fresh eyes the detailed instructions Scripture
offers for the Lordís Supper in 1 Corinthians 11, and
experience anew its power in your spiritual journey.

The Lordís Supperó Christís memorial that He left for us.

Re: This Do In Remembrance

Nice post David, I visited there a few months ago and its truly amazing and humbling to see the amount of people who still come to pay their respect and visit the sailors still entombed in the harbor.

I cant wait to return, it was an emotional visit to say the least.

Re: This Do In Remembrance

Amen to that powerstroke racer, & not to deviate from your post, but during this time when we celebrate CHRISTmas and not holidays in order to offend others. This is the time when we celebrate the birth of our lord and savior and must realize that is not all about gifts, but the one that we were given In Jesus Christ. And yes we must remember all those brave men and women who not only died in 1941, but who have given their lives and continue to do so for our freedom. God Bless America...one Nation under GOD.
