CityLight Pastor Commentary:
“Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him…” (Lk 24:31). Communion opens our eyes so we can see Who Jesus Is. The disciples did not know they were face to face with Jesus until they took bread, blessed it and broke it. Communion is the most powerful meal we can ever eat. It is the key to refreshing our relationship with God in a tangible, concrete way. It is essential for our physical health. It’s a reminder of everything Jesus Christ accomplished on the Cross for us: the Old Covenant was fulfilled on our behalf, and we were baptized by the blood of Jesus Christ into a New Covenant ruled by grace and mercy. Don’t forget to take communion!
Father, thank You for all the benefits of communion! Help me to remember to bless You with everything I have – my soul and all that is within me!
