Spiritual Bread for Spiritual Life
August 19, 2018 Series: The Belgic Confession
Food can do more than just nourish our bodies, or even please our taste buds. The taste or smell of food can stir up powerful memories of get-togethers with family and friends--think of your mom's apple pie, or roast turkey at Thanksgiving dinner.
So it is with the Lord's Supper. The bread and wine nourishes our faith in a mysterious way; by the power of the Holy Spirit, our souls are sustained by the body and blood of Jesus Christ. At the same time, we remember Christ's sacrifice on the cross--not just an intellectual remembering, but the same sort of powerful remembering we experience when we taste mom's apple pie, or smell roast turkey on Thanksgiving Day.
