"In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.””
1 Corinthians 11:25 NIV
I've been reading a book lately called 'Searching for Sunday' by Rachel Held Evans. Whilst there have been parts I have related to and others I have not, it has gotten me thinking a lot more about the beauty of the sacraments of Christianity. Especially communion.
I think it's been something I haven't thought about enough, taking part habitually instead of seeing it as a somewhere that I meet with Jesus.
Sharing in Rachel's story she reminded me that Jesus is at the table with us. When He asked us to do this in Remembrance of Him, He was inspiring us to meet with Him in the ordinary. To meet with him in fellowship. That there is something sacred in simply coming together to a place that reminds us of how accessible Jesus is in our everyday. From there anything can happen.
As we approach the table, He offers us all the same thing, and it's in that meeting that we realise we are equal and we are supernaturally made whole.
