Communion Meditation: Renewing the World through bread and wine

The kingdom of heaven is always accompanied by symbols. Symbols should never be despised because in and through them they provide for us the gospel of Jesus Christ. Christ gave us a meal to represent all that He wanted us to know. He gave us bread, which is a picture of His broken body, and wine, which is a picture of His blood. Bread is the body of this world. Those who eat bread participate in the new world Jesus Christ created. Wine is the covering of the world with the redeeming grace of Christ. Those who drink wine participate in this redemption. In this meal, we are actively involved in God’s program to renew the world through His beloved Son. This meal is given to those who have crossed the Red Sea in baptism, young and old, and who have found Christ to be their Promised Land. This meal is for you; for the kingdom is yours!
