You would think that a guy who married the woman of his dreams, and who is still madly in love, would have no problem remembering his wedding anniversary. But for some strange reason I still need some reminders. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Reminders are a good thing, even when we use them to remind us of things that we don’t have any trouble remembering. An anniversary itself is a reminder of a commitment that was made on one’s wedding day. As a matter of fact, all of the holidays that we celebrate are reminders of past events that are important to us.
Jesus knew the value of reminders as well as anybody. On the night he was betrayed he took the bread and cup, gave it to his disciples and said, “Take and eat, do this in remembrance of me.” I have no trouble remembering the price that was paid for my sin. However, taking communion is a reminder that keeps it on the front burner of my mind. What a blessing it is to know that all my sins, past, present and future are forgiven. It is also comforting to know that with my new full-proof method of wedding anniversary remembrance, my wife may never have to forgive me for forgetting another anniversary.
