Communion is an important part of the Christian experience. It is fellowship. It is association. It is sharing or holding something in common with another. We have the privilege of communion with God. We enjoy communion with each other.
But there is a special sense in which we have communion. Paul used the word this way in 1 Corinthians 10:16-17.
“The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread.”
The Lord’s Supper is a communion. It is a sharing together with the Lord. It is a time of mutual participation with fellow believers in remembering the most important event of human history.
Today I am going to participate in communion with my Church Family. It will be a time of solemn reflection. Personal examination. Spiritual rededication. While it will be an occasion for sharing in common, may I not allow it to become common place. Or take it for granted.
Communion is a special time. I sure hope you have a fellowship of Believers to join in communion today.
