REMEMBER AND RESPOND | SCOTT HARRIS Jesus is the main character of the entire bible and all history and future. He is the main character of EVERYTHING. He provides for our forgiveness for our past, peace for our present and purpose for our future. God made it so simple that nobody could say it was too hard to understand. It's not 23 steps and four pathways and eight guide roads and thirty-two rituals to go through. He just says, by trusting Christ. That's it. It's just as simple as putting my faith in Him. You don't get God’s unfailing love and faithfulness through religion! You don't get grace through ritual, not even baptism or communion. You don't receive God’s grace through keeping rules. But you do get grace through a relationship. So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God. Romans 5:11 NLT Grace is free. All you have to do is accept it. It's free to you. But it's not cheap. It cost Jesus His life. Grace is the most expensive commodity there is. Jesus died on the cross to pay for it. And Jesus never wants us to forget that. He never wants us to forget the sacrifice that He made so that we could experience the grace of God, so He gave us a reminder. He created a symbol. We are commanded to remember the death of Jesus. What happened when Jesus died on the cross? What really took place when He hung there 2000 years ago that makes something so significant that we celebrate it and remember it 2000 years later?
