The Bread and the Wine

February 9, 2011 Donna New

I was getting ready to eat a Wendy’s spicy chicken salad when a song came on the radio. It was about what Jesus went through when He died for us. Since I was getting ready to eat my mind went to Communion. I don’t go to a church service so I don’t take it very often and I miss it deeply. It’s such a worshipful time. So as I ate my salad I meditated on His gift of His broken body which heals me and His gift of His shed blood which cleanses me from sin.

The bread, His body and the wine, His blood are precious symbols of His work in us. When we were saved or first came to know Him they were what did the changing, making us feel clean and new and causing us to respond in a clean and new way. As we go through this life and we have disappointments and heartaches His broken body and the blood give us healing. They have a power beyond anything else. And as you get to know Him they have a sweetness and a depth that nothing else has. As we go home to be with the Lord they purchased our trail to heaven and the peace we take with us as we travel there.

Maybe every heartache that happens to us here is not immediately healed. But someday it will be. We’re promised that. And we bear the consequences of some of our sin. But one day we’ll be free. That’s something to worship for.
