Communion Meditation: The Strangeness of the Eucharist

Brothers and sisters, what we are about to do is strange, different, other-wordly to the unbeliever, but for us it is common, simple, and edifying. It is the very heart of our faith; it is communion in the body; it is a part of our worship. Just as we know when we awake each morning that we must eat, we know that when we meet as a body we must eat also. In fact, we know that without this meal worship would appear strange and incomplete to us. But thanks be to God He has provided for us a meal in the presence of our enemies. And as they watch from the outside, and perhaps at times from the inside, they will continue to wonder why do those baptized people eat and drink each week? By God’s grace one day they will no longer wonder, and they will join us at this great feast. Let us partake of the meal God provides for us.
