Sunday Seed Thoughts: Communion

Seed Thoughts

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.

  1. Ken, I always enjoy reading your posts. It’s time for us to come together and take better care of the body. I would be very grateful If you would share this with others: http://envisionhealthcoaching.org/2015/07/05/church-groups/

  2. Ken, I really enjoyed this. I am very blessed to have a wonderfully supportive church home and family. We receive communion every week. It is a way to be closer to God and to the rest of the church family. I am very grateful for my church family.

  3. I enjoy meeting with other divorced friends at my Bible study group prior to church on Sundays. We are studying and supporting each other in ways that would be hard to experience without this common bond together.
