I look forward to communion. It makes real the sacrifice. I have never experienced communion outside of church.

I think what is interesting is how in the old testament the chosen people of God were to be so different from those they lived with. God specifically told them how to consecrate themselves and behave so that they were very different from other nations.

Then today are we not equally challenged to be different in a dramatic fashion. We are to be clothed in Christ's work so that when we are in other settings there is a difference of love, kindness, compassion, understanding, and service.

I am looking at my clothes.

Ex 29:1- 30:10
Ordination of Aaron and his sons were today. I don't know why this bread making and ceremony reminds me of communion but it does. In alot of ways-the consecrating of temple and setting Aaron and sons as being holy is a foreshadowing of Jesus with Last Supper, breaking bread with disciples and the bread was his body broken for us and blood poured out foray for forgiveness of sin- Isn't that what Holy of Holies is about and the blood shed in and @ the door of Tabernacle anyway-t9 concecrate, set apart and for forgiveness.

Matt 26:14-46
Then we approach the story of short lived Judas- where he is an opportunist and looks for ways to betray Jesus and make a quick buck. However, Peter, James & John couldn't keep their eyes open to pray and stay firm in the faith- I wonder if God had them slumber for a reason- think maybe it might have been too much to watch. I know the Lord doesn't give us anything we aren't ready for. Jesus was literally sweating drops of blood. Wow!

Ps 31:19-24

Be strong and courageous- All who put their trust in Him! Praise God.

Prov 8: 14-26

I love these affirmations!
Common sense and success belong to me.
Insight and strength are mine
Those who search will surely find the Lord. Selah!

Communion.

I think when we read Mathew’s account of the Lord’s Supper its sort of an indication of how we should approach it. The mood before the Supper translates to what we should follow. These words suggest things to me: reclining, sad, betray, surely not I and they ended in a hymn.

I am not sure of your beliefs ( If you are Catholic, Only a validly ordained priest can authentically consecrate the Eucharist), but I have found that whenever I do the communion with friends, family or myself, it has a much deeper meaning for me and I come away with joy.


Mathew 26:32

Jesus says, after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee.

This little statement intrigued me so much that I often speak on it. It pertains to Luke 24:15 on the road to Emmaus two of them were talking about everything that had happened. “As they talked and discussed these things with each other Jesus himself came up and walked along with them”.

It just reassures us in unsettled times, like right now with Covid, that Jesus has already gone ahead of us in all of this and will walk it out with us. How cool is that!

Psalm 31:24 “Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord”.
