Communion Meditation 7: The Word of Promise and Witness

The central passage concerning the Lord’s Supper can be found in 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, which reads

For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.

In Remembrance of Me

On Sunday, we had communion at church.  My church serves wafers and wine and the congregation always sings songs while communion is served.  That day, we sang my favorite communion song, “In Remembrance of Me.” 501 more words

Love One Another

A Beneficial Bitterness

My first swig of wine came last December during communion. It was lukewarm and bitter, dragging itself down the throat with particular agitation. I coughed-up “Joy to the World” and tried to ignore how apparent my third-pew-ordeal was to the congregation. 517 more words
