Communion Meditation

Communion Meditation

We are called to come to this table in faith knowing that all that we have is the fruit of the perfect sacrifice of Christ. His body and blood makes us whole. We come also in hope. In this simple meal Christ fills us with the hope of glory. By partaking of this meal we have the hope and profound assurance that Christ will fulfill His promises to us; and this meal also is a symbol of the love of the body. When we eat and drink together we are affirming that this is a body of love. God hosts us this morning in this meal and equips us to embrace this sacred triad of faith, hope, and love.

Hebrews: Communion Meditation

Brothers and Sisters, the call of Hebrews is to persevere. When we come to this table we are once again declaring that Christ is our light and our salvation. We come to a table prepared for the saints of God remembering that He who began a good work in us will continue it until the last day.

Communion Meditation; Ephesians 6

Brothers and Sisters, the armor of God protects us from all the wiles of the devil and it conquers the authorities and powers. But every warrior must at some point stop and enjoy his victory. Not only does the soldier of the cross stop to feast and rejoice over the victory over his enemies, but he stops to be nourished for the battles ahead. Come and feast for Christ is our victory, come and be nourished for Christ is our strength!

Communion Meditation

People of God, we are members one of another; we are all partakers of Christ. We share a common family and a common heritage.  Calvin writes that this supper is “to exhort us to all holiness and innocence, inasmuch as we are members of Jesus Christ; and specially to exhort us to union and brotherly charity…” The word of God does that and this New Covenant meal does that as well. In bread, we see the body of Christ broken and put together by God himself, so He may be exalted above the heavens. In wine, we see the blood of Christ given for our transgressions. In wine, God remembers His promise to fill the nations with gladness.

Communion Meditation…

Bearing the cross is not what we expect to do in this life, but it is what we are called to do by our Savior. This morning we eat of the bread of life and drink of the heavenly wine. This meal is a meal of the kingdom. We eat and drink to be nourished; we eat and drink so tomorrow we may bear the cross for Christ’s sake. Be joyful people of God for this is your meal!
