Covenant Meal

Meditations on the Covenant Meal of Communion

covenant mealSacred + Commandment = Sacrament.  A sacred commandment of love should not go neglected and a mystery of grace should not be left unexplored.

Honestly a piece of broken bread and a sip of wine is not worth getting up for in the middle of the night, BUT eating at the Table with the King as his Mephibosheth is so healing I forget that I am lame.

Do this in remembrance of Me…being remembered is not so much what we do to him at the Table, but it’s what he does to us.

Communion is the Love Feast of God the Father & the Son of Man…the world has been invited!

communion_hands_breaking_breadThe covenant is between the Father and the Son, therefore it is an unbreakable union.  It is into that holy love you are adopted as Their sons and daughters and were given the Spirit of God. Romans 8:14-16

He gives food to all flesh and he gives his flesh for all to have food.  I offer bread & wine, he gives body & blood. It is more blessed to give than receive

Bread & Wine…remembering what our humanity receives from creation

Body & Blood…remembering what was given to create a new humanity.
