Often, Christians come to the Lord’s Table and think it’s a “you in your small corner and I in mine” kind of experience, where we meet with the Lord one-to-one, and there just happen to be other people around. But that’s not what Communion is supposed to be at all! It should be a gathering of God’s people – together – being in such a good relationship with each other that there is nothing separating us from each other, or from God.
Reality often shows us that human relationships are not always what they’re supposed to be, but Jesus envisioned better for us. As we approached the Lord’s Table today, we heard a message based on Matthew 5.21-26, and Matthew 18.15-17.
During this message, I showed the video you can watch here. Listen to the message and consider your relationships with fellow Christ-followers.
