Communion is food from God
We were visiting my daughter Sarah’s family and about to go to church with them. My then four-year old grandson Jack walked up to me and said, as only a small child can, “My father is ushering today and he’s going to feed us food from God.” I realized he was talking about the bread and juice that would be served for communion that Sunday. 1 Corinthians 11:24b and 25b (NKJV) says, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me… This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” Communion is “Food from God” …now, that got me thinking about what Jack’s wonderful four-year old mind saw as “food from God.” Communion really is God’s food for us. The communion experience carries the potential to nourish our spirits and sustain our souls. Next time you enjoy communion, remember that thought. It could drive you to tears of gratefulness. I’m Dr. Bob. Is there something about your relationship with God that drives you to tears of gratefulness… or tears of sorrow? If you are experiencing sorrow, grab some bread and juice and go have communion with Him. It can change everything.
