What a sweet comfort to us that our Lord Jesus Christ was once known in the breaking of the bread. In earlier Christian times, believers called the Communion “the medicine of immortality,” and God gave them the desire to pray: Be known to us in breaking bread, but do not then depart; Savior, abide with us and spread Thy table in our heart. Some churches have a teaching that you will find God only at their table-and that you leave God there when you leave. I am so glad that God has given us light. We may take the Presence of the table with us. We may take the Bread of life with us as we go. Then sup with us in love divine, Thy body and Thy blood; That living bread and heavenly wine Be our immortal food! In approaching the table of our Lord, we dare not forget the cost to our elder Brother, the Man who was from heaven. He is our Savior; He is our Passover!

THOUGHTS ON COMMUNION
He took bread . . . and their eyes were opened, and they knew him. Luke 24:30-31
We may take the Presence of the table with us. We may take the Bread of life with us as we go.
Lord, thank You that the lesson of the Lord’s supper is not left at the table, but continues to nourish the faithful partaker from day to day.
