COMMUNION IN THE LORD’S PRESENCE

Picture-blog-Communion

Reading the Gospel of Matthew, I was reminded of how special communion really is. When it was instituted by the Lord Jesus, it was at a time when He knew his life was in danger. During this time, his disciples were troubled because He had prophesied about his betrayal and subsequent death on the Cross. With all these thoughts and emotions looming in the background, as He broke the bread and gave the wine, there was a sense of peace, unity, friendship, hope and assurance. Suddenly, the physical world and its worries weren’t as important. What really mattered was the spiritual bond of brotherhood through adoption, purchased by the covenant of the blood of Jesus.       

Matthew puts it this way, “Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.”And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you,for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom” (Matthew 26:26-29).  

As we gather for communion this evening, let us come with our worries and troubles, trusting that we will leave the Lord’s presence transformed.
