This weekend, we are celebrating the Lord’s Supper. This is always such a powerful time of worship as we remember the sacrifice that Jesus made for us. However, communion can often become just another ritual; something we do because we always have. This weekend, we will seek to understand the purpose behind communion and it’s significance for us. We will be reminded that Christ is our “SUSTENANCE.”
We will be learning about Jesus feeding over 5,000 people with just five loaves of bread and two fish. This miracle is about much more than food, however. It is about spiritual satisfaction. Keep in mind that there were twelve baskets of food left over. When Jesus fills us, he more than meets our needs. Through Him, our souls are sustained; we are satisfied and will never be hungry again.
