Commentary from Pastor Mike White:

“Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him…” – Lk 24:31

Jesus was raised from the dead. The disciples on the road to Emmaus had no idea they were walking and talking with Jesus. But when they took Communion, everything changed.

Communion opens our eyes so we can see Who Jesus Is. The disciples did not know they were face to face with Jesus until they took bread, blessed it and broke it. Once they had celebrated Communion, they saw Him clearly!

Communion is the most powerful meal we can ever eat. It is the key to refreshing our relationship with God in a tangible, concrete way. It is essential for our physical health. It’s a reminder of everything Jesus Christ accomplished on the Cross for us: the Old Covenant was fulfilled on our behalf, and we were baptized by the blood of Jesus Christ into a New Covenant ruled by grace and mercy. Don’t forget to take communion!

Prayer:

Father, thank You for the power in the Communion meal. Thank You that as I eat the bread and drink the cup, I remember Your promise to me. Thank You that by the blood of Jesus, I am healed!
