Why is the Memorial, the Lord’s Supper, the most important event of the year for followers of Jesus Christ?

Why is the Memorial, the Lord's Supper, for followers of Jesus Christ the most important event of the year?
Because Jesus Christ expressly asked his followers to remember his death. It is the only celebration he ordered. He said: “(Luke 22:19, 20) 19 Also, he took a loaf, gave thanks, broke it, and gave it to them, saying: “This means my body, which is to be given in your behalf. Keep doing this in remembrance of me.” 20 Also, he did the same with the cup after they had the evening meal, saying: “This cup means the new covenant by virtue of my blood, which is to be poured out in your behalf..”

Why can we look forward to the Memorial?

The Memorial reminds us of the value of Jesus’ ransom. And how we can show gratitude for the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. It is also an opportunity where we can encourage each other. In the Bible we can read: “(Romans 1:12) 12 or, rather, that we may have an interchange of encouragement by one another’s faith, both yours and mine.”

Why is it important to reflect on Jesus’ sacrifice?

We ourselves could never free ourselves from sin and death. The Bible says, “(Psalm 49:7, 8) 12 or, rather, that we may have an interchange of encouragement by one another’s faith, both yours and mine.”
Jehovah God and Jesus Christ paid a very high price to save us. When we think about it, our gratitude for it increases.

What was involved in the ransom?

The first man Adam was perfect when he was created. But when he sinned, he lost the chance of eternal life. And with him also all his descendants. Through his sacrificial death, Jesus made it possible for Adam’s descendants to have the chance of eternal life again.
Through Jesus’ sacrificial death, he paid the price that was required. The ransom. A ransom is the price you pay to buy someone’s freedom.
To do this, Jesus had to remain sinless throughout his entire life here on earth. However, Satan the devil tried to entice Jesus to sin. So that he couldn’t pay the ransom.
They also persecuted Jesus Christ and wanted to kill him.
When Jesus Christ was put on trial, he was mocked and tortured. And his execution was extremely painful and also humiliating (Hebrews 12:1-3). And Jesus endured the final part of his trial without the protection of Jehovah God.—Matthew 27:46.

How much did it cost Jehovah God to pay the ransom?

Jehovah God and Jesus Christ share the closest Father-Son relationship there is. Imagine what Jehovah endured as he watched Jesus Christ suffer on earth. And when he was executed. How much it must have pained Jehovah to see his only begotten Son so mistreated and tested to the uttermost. It would have been easy for him to prevent it. But he didn’t do it out of love for us humans.

It is good for us to attend the annual Lord’s Supper

And to commemorate the death of Jesus. We will do ourselves a lot of good if we take enough time on the anniversary of Jesus Christ’s death to reflect with appreciation on what Jehovah God and Jesus Christ have done for us. Our love for Jehovah God and Jesus Christ can increase. This love is the basis for us to be able to lead a happy life today. A meaningful life. And in the future, we can receive eternal life from Jehovah God. And by attending the Memorial we can show our gratitude.
