Communion Meditation

We preachers emphasize sin a lot. It is really hard not to. It is an undeniable truth about our fallen nature. Sin is not just what we do, it is who we are by nature. We can turn the fact of our sin into redoubling our efforts to do it right. We become hard nosed legalists that no one wants to be around. Except other legalists. We can turn the fact of our sin into guilt and shame. And then live out of that shame and guilt. We beat ourselves up all the time as a strange form of penance. We can, and this is perhaps the worst option, ignore our sin entirely. What must we do with our sin? Communion with our Lord Jesus Christ calls us away from these destructive methods of dealing with our sin.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 God’s love is an astonishing kind of love. God so loved the world. The world was not so big that it took a great deal of love to love it. The world was so bad that it took a special kind of love to love it. It is this special, divine, self-generated love that we embrace by faith in the Lord’s Supper. We needed this special kind of love because we had sinned and were separated from God. This love reconciles us to God. He gave his only Son. The great love of God gave his only Son, for His people, His children, for believers, for you. This table is for

Get on the Plane

An eight year old child once asked his father, “How big is God?” The wise father answered the question with a question. “Son, look up at the sky. Do you see that airplane?” “Yes.” “How big is that plane? “ “It looks tiny. Smaller than my little finger.” Then, he drove his son to O’hare in Chicago and got as close to the Boeing 777 planes as the TSA would allow. “Son, how big is the plane now?” “It is huge.” “You see son, the closer you get to God, the larger He becomes.” That was how I first heard the illustration. The lesson was that God gets bigger and bigger the more you know about him and the closer you approach him. Cool. God is big and Christian experience makes him look ev
