In 2002 we had a guest speaker at our Church in Hughson, Rev. John Carlton,and it fell on Communion Sunday. I took notes in my Bible and have referred to them many times when reflecting on Communion. I wanted to share them briefly with you today.
Look in these directions before taking the Lord's Supper.
BACK ~ Looking back to the terrible price that was paid for our salvation (Isa. 53)
AHEAD ~ Testimony until he comes again. The Second coming of Christ. Will you be ready? (I Cor. 11:26)
AROUND ~ All the lost in the world, that are unsaved. (John 3:16)
WITH`IN ~ We need to look within and examine our own hearts. Take an honest inventory.
*Not save ~ Have we made that decision? (John 3:16)
*Living in un-repented sin (I John 1:9)
*Holding an offence against another
Communion is a serious and wonderful act of worship and remembrance.
I was thrilled when I read that in 1969 Buz Aldrin took communion to the moon in Apollo 11. What better place to remember the Creator of the Universe, and the Savior of our hearts.
Hope this is a wonderful Sunday for you. Blessing and prayers for all my blogger friends.
