The Tie that Binds

communion

Paul chastised the church at Corinth for the divisions that existed in that congregation. They even allowed the Lord’s Supper–which should be, among other things, a celebration of unity–to become divisive.

Communion gives members of a local church the chance to recognize the common bond they have in Christ. More than that, the celebration of the Lord’s Supper reminds believers all over the world of the connection they have with one another.

When my wife moved away from home to go to college, communion took on a special new meaning for her. Each Sunday she knew that the members of her family, no matter how far away, were sharing her experience of remembering their crucified and risen Savior.

Blessed be the tie that binds us together in Christ!
