    In Remembrance of Christ

    This is as true to-day as it was when the children of Israel were in the desert of Arabia. The man who does not day by day recognize the body of Christ in His gifts, eats and drinks damnation to himself. Is this too strong a statement? Everyone who thinks of it for a moment must confess that it is not. “Whatsoever is not of faith is sin;” and “the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience.” “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” 1Psalm 9:17. Now there is no one thing that men do oftener than eat, except to breathe. Two or three times a day, and with some even oftener, they sit at table and partake of food for the support of their lives. And the taking of the food into the body is only the beginning of the process of receiving it; the work begun by the teeth and tongue is continued for hours by the other organs of the body. Therefore if men do not remember God in the food that they eat, they cannot be said to remember Him at all.EVCO 258.2

    Again: all our strength comes from what we eat; if therefore we do not recognize and acknowledge that the strength is the Lord’s we shall not yield it to Him for Him to control and direct; and that means of course that we will do what seems right in our own eyes; and the end of that way is death.EVCO 258.3
