“For as often as you eat this bread
and drink the cup, you proclaim
the Lord’s death until he comes.”
– I Corinthians 11:26
On the night he was betrayed 2000 years ago, Jesus broke bread and lifted a cup, then gave it to his disciples telling them to “do this in remembrance of me.” So what?
The living Son of God wants to be really present in your life today. You can experience God’s forgiveness, healing and power in your life as you come clean before the altar. You can encounter the living God in a holy spiritual mystery every time you take the bread and wine and you can walk away with a new life. So, what does this mean?
Will you focus your senses to encounter God, or will you walk up, eat and walk away as if nothing happened?
