Communion Meditation- God the Giver

As we eat this Communion meal let us remember that communion with God is to be known and then to know . God first knows us, we are known by Him, and then we can know Him. We thank Him for revealing Himself to us and then drawing us into sweet communion with Him, His Son and His Spirit.

This is also true of the brotherhood. We seek to understand and then we can be understood. We always give first and then we receive.

This is true of our children. We give them to God and then He gives them back to us.

God gives to us and then we can give to Him. He brings us into the body of Christ as a gift and then we can give to one another. God has given to each of you and brought you here to give yourself back to Him. Furthermore, He brings us here so that we learn to share this Table fellowship with one another. This is the fellowship of the saints that reveals the glory of God to the world. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
