Communion Meditation: Priests and Kings

Our lesson this morning (Luke 2:39-52) says that our Lord was taken to the feast of Passover. The Feast of Passover is the Great feast of remembrance. But it is more than that: this was not just a feast to remember the deliverance of Israel, it was a feast that celebrated God’s victory over evil. This is what we have this morning: bread signifies that Christ truly came in human flesh for us; and wine signifies that his death was truly given to accomplish the Father’s plans. This table means that evil has been crushed and that we are feasting in victory. Bread and wine; bread, priestly; wine, kingly. You eat as priests, and you drink as kings. This is who you are because Christ has become priest and king for us. So, come and eat and drink: priests and kings of the most High God.
