Every time a covenant is cut, as part of the completion of the covenant, a meal must be served. If you enter a covenant with someone and you don’t share a covenant meal, you will be looked upon with distrust. The same way, the communion is a covenant meal. When we break bread, we are letting Jesus know that he must step in as a matter of covenant obligation. Covenant removes convenience. It was when I realized this that I started to understand why every issue my friend and I broke bread over got a solution. 

I remember some time ago when we were having some problems in one of our Church locations. Armed robbers would go to that area of town every night and rob the houses on the street. We went to the Lord in prayer and broke bread; by the next morning, all the robbers had been arrested! Breaking bread means that God is obliged; it is a covenant matter because it involves the blood of JESUS.

The strongest and most indestructible union two human beings can have on the earth is the blood covenant. When a man decides to get married, he makes a commitment, forsaking all others and staying faithful to his wife, and the woman does the same. That is the oath and sacrifice of marriage. If there is no such sacrifice, there is no marriage. 

 
PRAYER: Dear Holy Spirit, help me to be more conscious of the power that is available to me by virtue of the holy communion, and help me to enjoy it more and more in Jesus’ name. Amen!
