Meals with Jesus Part 8
Communion is a good thing to do every so often, right? Wrong. When Jesus said, “Do this in remembrance of me”(Luke 22:19), it wasn’t a suggestion. It was a command… do this. Not only that but the word “do” is a present continuous verb. That means to “”do this and keep on doing this.
Why? Why was Jesus so insistent? Because he is the bread of life. In him is life giving sustenance. When we feed on him in our heart, with thanksgiving… something mysterious happens. We are fed in the deepest recesses of our souls. Said differently, apart from communion, our souls will become malnourished and wither away. Learn more in this week’s sermon.
