“In Remembrance of Me”: Remembering Jesus’ Love for Us

“After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, ‘Take this and divide it among you. 18 For I tell you I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.’ And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.’”
(Luke 22:17-20, NIV)

Remembering Columbine, 20 Years Later

20 years ago, 12 high schoolers and one teacher died at the hands of two sadistic teenagers. Parents, classmates, friends, families, and loved ones were left in the wake of the tragedy, picking up the pieces of their shattered lives.

In view of what Sol Pais may have been planning to do, it reminds me that we are not immune to such attacks today. In fact, the attacks have seemingly gotten more and more violent and frequent. What are we to do in such a world as this?

Jesus said, “’Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. … Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. … ‘I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.’” (John 14:1; 14:27; 16:33).

In times like these, we must look up. To comfort and strengthen those hurt by such tragedies, we must be full of Jesus’ Love and the Holy Spirit. As they face an incredibly dark reality of losing their loved ones, we must, and can be, the Light.

Keep shining, friends. May we never forget such a tragedy as Columbine, and may we love on all those who were affected.

Do you know Jesus?

Jesus Christ went through the most excruciating pain possible; and He did it out of Love for you and for me. Learn more about Jesus, and all He has done, here.


Please pray for (find the prayer sheet here):

  • Those who are grieving today over what happened at Columbine.
  • Those who do not know Jesus and His Comfort.
  • Those who may be heading down the same path as the shooters—that Jesus would change and save their lives before something horrific happens again.
  • The Chibok girls and Leah Sharibu.

Thank you for your prayers.

Prayer for Leah Sharibu

Leah-Sharibu-2

It has been a little over a year since Christian girl Leah Sharibu was taken captive. She was kept in Boko Haram’s clutches because she refused to renounce her faith in Jesus Christ.

I want the same boldness and loyalty to Christ that Leah has. I would like to think that I, too, would refuse to renounce Jesus, but I cannot know for sure.

Leah is an inspiration; a gem who is precious to our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Please take some time today to pray over Leah, and over her family.

Thank you for your prayers!


Leah’s faith in Christ is amazing. Learn more about Jesus, and what He has done for you and I, here.

Happy Palm Sunday!

Today officially marks the beginning of Holy Week, starting with the biblical account of Jesus riding into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey, just as Zechariah 9:9 stated: “Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” Jesus fulfilled all prophecy spoken about His first coming, and this was just one of them!

May you spend this special day reflecting upon what Jesus went through as a human, all out of His Love for you!
