There are two occasions in which the phrase ‘Remember me’ is recorded in scripture. One is the famous statement from the thief on a cross next to the cross of Jesus where he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” Jesus was quick to tell him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.” He was remembered.
The other use of ‘Remember me’ is when Jesus instituted The Lord’s Supper. In the apostle Paul’s instruction to the Corinthian church he wrote, “The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” Every time we have the Bread and Wine Jesus is remembered.
We ask the Lord to remember us and he asks us to remember him.
“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.” Jesus
