Food for the soul

by DanWolgemuth on October 25, 2010

It’s my intent to serve communion to our National Board on the second morning of our meetings together. Everything is ready.

“And when the hour came, he reclined at table, and the apostles with him.” ~ Luke 22:14

Jesus had waited three years for this meal. It was the training meal before the battle of the ages.

It was a banquet and an object lesson.

Food for the body; but more importantly, food for the soul.

Even the way He distributed the bread and the wine was instructive: broken bread, broken body – poured wine, poured blood.

Not a moment was wasted. And yet there was no rush.

The meal raised more questions than it answered in the minds of the disciples. But Jesus felt no obligation to cover every base, to appease every concern.

It was enough that He broke the bread and poured the wine.

And as Jesus walked His followers through the meal of all meals He taught them; He modeled for them. “Do this in remembrance of me.”

Unique, powerful, beautiful nourishment. Soul food.

“…in remembrance of me.”
