Come worship the Lord in the beauty of Holiness! Today we partake of Holy Communion as we remember our Lord and Saviour! Let all who Love Him received the emblems of His Grace & Healing. You are always welcome in our Church family.
One would think we would be in remembrance of our Lord’s Sacrifice on a daily basis, but alas the ‘cares of this life’ have a tendency to overwhelm us at times or just interrupt the plans that we make concerning our spiritual activities. Jesus said these powerful Words on the eve of His incarceration and ultimate Sacrifice. As He gave thanks and brake the Bread with His Disciples at the Last Supper, He said: “This is My Body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of Me.” There is controversy among spiritual leaders concerning when we should have Communion in our Church Services: Some day once a month, some say every Sunday, some think you must go through a ritual and have a set time to be brought to the Communion table. Some teach it is so holy that the saints are fearful to partake. On and on go the thoughts of mankind. But Look at who Jesus brought to the Communion Table. Men of righteous indignation, desiring to call down thunder from heaven, a man with an uncontrollable temperament who would even attempt to chastise the Lord and would deny he knew Jesus, one who would soon betray Him and those who would go into hiding when things got dangerous. These are the followers of Jesus whom He desired to have Communion with, to eat the Passover with before His suffering. They too like humanity of today, were caught up in the ‘cares of this life.’ Did Jesus say He was going away? Did He reach out to those who seemed to follow Him so close and invite them to come to a prayer meeting with Him? Yes in His most desperate hour He brought them with Him to pray. This is a desperate hour for our country, for Christianity, for the followers of Christ. We must daily remember Jesus, to the point of take Communion in our home as we begin our day. For He is our strength, our consolation− Let us daily Commune with Him…. Prepare for your Lenten Discipline. Loving you, Pastor
