A Real Feeding

The Lord’s Supper has stumbled, or offended, many people since its inception. The Romans accused Christians of cannibalism, not knowing what was going on. Roman Catholics bow to the bread and wine, as if it were physically Jesus. On the other side, too many Protestants think there is no real connection between Jesus and the bread. It’s just what we do to remember. All the action is in our brains, and these tokens just help our brain and hearts along. But there is a true and real feeding going on here. It doesn’t depend on the flesh, on the bread and wine being just right, or the minister saying just the right words. It depends on the Spirit joining us to Christ, it depends on our faith in Him. Then Jesus feeds us in our union with Him.
