Reflecting on Communion

 

Mark 14:22 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take it; this is my body.” 23 Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, and they all drank from it. 24 “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many,” he said to them. 25 “I tell you the truth, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it anew in the kingdom of God.” 26 When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

This very important event is in all of the Gospels and the above is how Mark told it. We can rejoice in this story as we see Jesus’ love abounding.

Every first Sunday of each month, Communion Sunday is observed at La Vernia United Methodist Church and it is a time to rejoice in the love of Jesus. As we take the bread, we are reminded that this represents Jesus’ body that He gave for us. And as we drink the juice, we are again reminded of the blood of Jesus that was shed for us. It is a time of reflection and dedication to our Lord and Savior and an opportunity to thank Him for His gracious and everlasting love. As we take the bread and wine, we are reminded to look to God for forgiveness and to strive to always live for Him in every area of our lives and to be a witness to and for Him everywhere we go, in all our actions, in all our words.

It is a time of reflection, it is a time of awe, it is a time of rejoicing, and it is a time to share God’s love and His dedication to all of us. Let’s always remember to thank God for His love and His grace in our lives.

At La Vernia United Methodist Church you are invited to take Communion, it is not a Methodist table, it is God’s table and all are invited. Turn your life to Him and enjoy the fruits of the communion as we celebrate God’s love and Christ’s sacrifice. We can always rejoice in God’s love and His forgiveness and His directions. Let’s always seek Him in every area of our lives, every day, all the time!
