Someone once compiled a list of some of the best-loved words and phrases in the English language. Among those phrases making the list are: I love you, I forgive you and Supper’s ready!
Those three phrases are implied, if not explicitly spoken in some way, every time Christians come together for communion. As we take communion, we should always be reminded of God’s great love for us, a love that sent his son Jesus to the cross. We should also think about how our sins, all of them, have been washed away by the blood of Jesus. And we should rejoice that Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper, giving us a perfect way to reflect on God’s love and forgiveness.
I love you! I forgive you! Supper’s ready!
Celebrate those wonderful words every chance you get!
