“And when He had taken some bread and given thanks, He broke it and gave it to them saying, ‘This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me’” (Luke 22:19).

Since this verse is normally associated with the observance of communion, our tendency is to hear it as an admonition for the continuance of a commemorative exercise. The imperative charge, however, and the only fitting remembrance of what Christ has given, is the offering of one’s own life in selfless sacrifice; it is to be fully mindful of what God has accomplished in Christ Jesus, to the degree that it is actually being translated into our lives.
