Thoughts on communion....

As we prepare for communion season this weekend these thoughts from Andrew Bonar's Diary on his communion seasons, are on my mind.....


The Lord's Supper

"I sometimes think that to the Lord's people dying will be very like going to the Communion Table. There is a little anxiety and sometimes a little bustle, about the going in to the table; but that is soon over, and all is calmness, and we do nothing else but keep looking upon the Lord."



"John did not rise up from the table because there was a doubt about himself and his steadfastness. He leaned all the harder on his Master's bosom."


"However weak you are if you value supremely the atoning blood, come to the Table."



 "At the communion table remember Him and forget yourself."



"Jesus is walking today among the seven golden candlesticks and He will stop at our table to see if any of us want anything from Him."



"Christ's nearer coming casts deeper solemnity over every communion."

Intense Debate Comments

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
