John 6: v 51-58 v 56 “Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood live in me, and I live in them.”
Jesus often said things that were difficult to understand. He knew the big picture. So those around him who did not have the full story argued about the meaning of what he said.
Communion services however are our answer. As Christians today we take part in worship that includes the Lords supper, demonstrated by Jesus in the few days before his earthly ministry ended. The sharing of bread as his body and wine as his blood are symbols of a living God as “those who eat my flesh and drink my blood live in me, and I in them.”
There have been many inventive ways to “ share” meals during the pandemic. Frozen meals delivered to your door, bagged meals for pick up at a restaurant, but actually sitting with others around a table and sharing food is a wonder that I certainly appreciate as the restrictions are lifted. So will be the sharing of communion once again together around the table of God.
Loving Lord we ask that you are with us as we break bread around your table as Jesus taught us. Amen
