We once again gather to observe The Lord’s Supper as a family. Jesus said that as often as we eat the bread and drink the cup, we are to do it remembering Him. The Greek word for remember is not to be understood as, “Oh, I forgot something.” It means more than a mental lapse of forgetfulness. It means that when we partake of the elements, our souls are to be awakened afresh to Who Jesus is and what He has done for us.

Amongst the many redemptive words relative to Jesus’ work on the cross, is that He destroyed the curse of the law by His death on the cross. Simply put, the curse of the law is this. If you sought to get right with God by keeping the law of God, fine. One hitch. There was no room for error at all. If you kept 9 out of the 10 commandments, you were guilty of all of them. Doomed. Cursed, for it was written, cursed be anyone who does not obey the entire law perfectly. But that was God’s purpose for the law. It was meant to show you the inability to get right with God by your own works. The purpose of the law was to reveal our sin and point us to the one and only Sin-Bearer, The Lord Jesus Christ. To set fallen man free, a perfect life must be lived before God, and the curse of sin be satisfied.

That is what our Lord’s Supper Scripture study in Galatians 3:10-14 is all about. Jesus, The Perfect Man, lived a perfect life, and on the cross, He became the curse-bearer for our sin. When we by grace, through faith in what Jesus did on the cross, reach out to Him for mercy, we are redeemed from the penalty of the curse of the law, and are declared righteous. Glory to God for His grace!
