When the hour had come, He sat down, and the twelve apostles with Him. Then He said to them, “With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; for I say to you, I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, “Take this and divide it among yourselves; for I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.”
And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.
[Luke 22:14-20 NKJV]
Jesus had a fervent desire for this meeting in the upper room with his disciples. For Him this was an essential part of His time on earth with us. There is an intensity about Him, and His do this in remembrance of me, was no mere request. Without this 'doing', the remembrance would be a passing thought only.
It is in the 'doing' that we truly follow Him and become broken bread and poured out wine in His service.

My worth to God in public is what I am in private.
Is my ambition to please Him and be acceptable to Him,
or is it something else, no matter how noble?
