It has been a wonderful weekend of catching up with
friends. We have sat together at tables and talked about memories
from the past, learned about what is happening in our lives
currently and even spoken about current plans.
When we come together with Christ at the communion table,
we share a similar experience with God. At the table, Christ
shows us the sin in our life. He reminds us that He died on the
cross to forgive all our sin, and then He opens our eyes to what
life should continue to be through the Holy Spirit’s guiding and
directing our steps.
The communion table is the sacred place where God and
man come together in Christ. At the table, Christ calls us to
remember His sacrifice for our sin. He invites us to break bread
with Him so we can remember that He broke the chains of our
sin and has set us free from death. When we come to the table,
we honor Jesus because we keep His request to “Do this in remembrance
of me” (Luke 22:19).
At the communion table, we quiet our hearts before the Father,
humble ourselves before Christ and receive the friendship
of God through the Holy Spirit.
Come to the table.
