Communion Meditation

August 7, 2012

I am really bad at planning my communion meditations ahead of time. I mostly do my communion meditations the morning of church. I know, don’t tell my preaching professor.

Being married to Waylon has caused a shift in my theological perspective. Instead of berating people for their “badness” I try to communicate God’s love every chance I get. Sunday morning I pulled my communion meditation from Ephesians 3:14-21.

Paul’s powerful prayer to the Ephesians. He prays that kingdom people will be empowered by the Holy Spirit which will allow Christ’s love to be rooted within their hearts. These rooted kingdom people will get a taste of how high, deep, and wide, God’s love is for his people.

What a powerful image. God’s love is so all encompassing that it floods our senses and our essential beings.

Before we can experience this kind of suffocating and liberating love we must allow the Holy Spirit into our lives and into our churches. Coming together to celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ through communion is a wonderful opportunity for our churches to open our lives to the Holy Spirit. Who would have thought that the Holy Spirit is the cause of all revivals.

This wonderful opportunity named communion also leads us to live out Spirit driven lives during our weeks. While we commune with our brothers and sisters in Christ on Sunday we can taste the love of the Trinity and give that to others during our week.
