We Remember and we Look Forward
Posted on the , in Thoughts for the Week, by Ashley Hardingham
So its Advent – hooray! (I think).
Advent which means coming and we look back and celebrate and thank God that he came in human form to this old world. And it is an Advent which changes everything, (just re-read today’s quotation.)
But we also speak of a Second Advent, the day when Christ will return again. So all our celebrating is also a straining forward and anticipation of His return.
And tonight, we share communion together. We know that we do this ‘in remembrance’ but we also do it in anticipation. Sharing the bread and wine is a foretaste of that which we will experience when fully united with Christ and as such, that is definitely worth celebrating.
