Communion: The Bread of Life Broken for Us

The heart of the message delivered by Rev. Jack Albright on Sunday came from Luke 14:1-6. Take a moment to read the passage now (click on the Scripture reference to read it online).

Jesus broke bread with His people, for His people,
leading to communion and healing.

Jesus, the Bread of Life, broke Himself to restore communion and make the way for our salvation, deliverance, and healing.
Our incredibly compassionate, merciful, loving, righteous, just God stooped down, became the Word made flesh, in order to bring healing to hearts, minds, souls, and bodies.
What makes it most incredible is the fact that we only need healing, salvation, and deliverance because we rejected our Creator and His way — we rebelled — we broke relationship with Him.
God sums up the problem in the Old Testament reading we heard on Sunday:
“My people have committed two sins:
They have forsaken me, the spring of living water,
and have dug their own cisterns,
broken cisterns that cannot hold water. …”
Jeremiah 2:13 NIV84
We continually forsake the Spring of Living Water for our own way, digging our own reservoirs for life that leak and fail, infect and destroy.
The Bread of Life… 
broken for us… 
a people who reject and find fault… 
with our Father…
What faulty systems are you trusting for life?
Have you noticed how they leak and infect?

Trust Jesus.
Commune with Him.
Eat of His Word.
Walk in His Way.
Know life abundant.
