I was a Christian but I really wasn’t focused on spiritual things.
It’s not that I wasn’t engaged in church life. I was.
I taught Sunday School
I served on committees
I was involved in an Easter pageant with weekly rehearsals
I was an active church member but I gave very little thought to how my faith should impact my day-to-day life.
It was a Sunday evening. I sat alone near the back of the church. I held the Lord’s Supper cup and reflected on its meaning. It represented the blood of Jesus.
Blood shed for me.
Blood poured out for my sake.
I was deeply moved by the thought. Profoundly moved. It had been a long, long time since I had last meditated upon what Jesus had done on my behalf. My reflection upon Jesus’ death began my personal journey into ministry. Something significant took place in my heart that evening as we shared the Lord’s Supper together. I was forever changed.
The Lord’s Supper will be the focus of our worship services this Sunday.
Begin your own personal reflection now. Don’t wait until Sunday.
Prepare yourself for this moving act of worship through honest reflection of your own spiritual condition.
