Experiencing CHRIST In Communion : 52 Devotionals for the Lord's Supper
by Gary Cottrell




Overview -
What do you experience when you take the Lord's Supper? Has it become simply a ritual, part of a liturgy that is now a dry routine? I am part of a religious tradition that celebrates the Lord's Supper weekly and also uses lay people to preside at the Lord's Supper. This book is directed especially to churches which reflect that kind of setting. It includes fifty-two devotionals designed to be presented to your congregation before they participate in the Lord's Supper. "Experiencing CHRIST in Communion" seeks to transform this ancient practice in a way that helps contemporary Christians feel the significance of the Lord's Supper, using illustrations from contemporary life, as well as appropriate Biblical examples. "The only way we can also remember is if we too have had experiences with the living Christ." "To whatever troubles your heart today, Jesus gives the same answer - Himself. He took upon Himself all of the struggles, the uncertainty, the heartbreak that come with being human. He overcame them - even death itself, if only to make us understand that God is still in control and there is so much more than the struggles of this life." "Maybe right now you're in the midst of a storm that seems ready to overwhelm you. But you see He knows what that's like too." "The power of the gospel is the assurance that, although the Lord's Supper uses symbols, it represents a reality that you and I can live every single day. Make no mistake, it is reality we celebrate today, not just a symbol."
