    I do wonder if I take the Lord’s Supper too casually. When I do find myself doing that, I try and think about how my Parent’s Church performs the Lord’s supper. On Saturday night, they bake a small flat loaf bread. As they beat the batter, they discuss the beating that Christ took for us. They then crease the bread for easy breaking apart Bach crease is a representation of the stripes that Christ took for us. After they bread comes out of the oven, they then cover it to represent His time in the tomb. On Sunday, after partaking of the bread and the wine, they wash each others feet, sing one song then depart. It is so easy to take all that He did for us for granted.

    The Lord’s Supper never gets old. Each time I participate in it, it takes me back to thinking of how He suffered and died so I could live. His grace continues to amaze me! And to think that one day we will feast with Him in that great banquet to come. Yes, I do long for that day, more and more as time goes by. The longer I live the more I come to feel that this world is really not my home.

    Every time I partake in the Lord’sSupper I am reminded of what Christ did for me. His broken body and shed blood brought forgiveness of my sins and restored a broken relationship with God. Praise God!!
