Jesus’ message resonates with us on this Communion Sunday as we gather at the table to receive the bread of heaven and the cup of salvation. We remember how Jesus broke bread with his disciples and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me” (1 Corinthians 11:24). Jesus asks us to continue to break bread and eat it together, believing that it is the body of Christ and the bread of life. We are nourished as Christ’s disciples when we receive this spiritual food, strengthened, and equipped to be food for a hungry world.
- John 6:24-35
