Bread and Wine

Thoughts on bread and wine at communion.

Jesus said, eat this in remembrance of me.
How does bread remind us of Him?
Bread is food, and without food we starve and die.
Bread gives us strength and energy,
It feeds our body gives us the means to live.
Jesus said, He is the bread of life.
This piece of bread reminds us that
Without Him, we will spiritually starve and die.
This piece of bread reminds us that
With Him, we receive spiritual strength and energy
And become spiritually alive.
As we eat this bread, we remember
We are not to nibble at His teachings,
We are to take Him completely into our life.
May we be willing to do this as we eat in remembrance of Him

Jesus said, drink this in remembrance of me.
How does wine remind us of Him?
If we don’t drink, our mouths become parched and dry, and we die.
Drinking refreshes and revives us, and is essential for us to live.
Jesus said, He is the everlasting water
This glass of wine reminds us that
Without Him, we become spiritually parched and dry
And eventually we spiritually die.
This glass of wine reminds us that
With Him, we are spiritually revived and refreshed
And we become spiritually alive.
As we drink this wine, we remember
We are not to sip at His teachings,
We are to drink Him in completely into out life.
May we be willing to do this as we drink in remembrance of Him.
