Spiritual Food And Drink

Bread and Wine

Why are food and drink mentioned so often in the Word? Why does Jesus make a connection between bread and His flesh and wine and His blood? Why are we encouraged to partake in consuming these elements in a sacred manner?

Bread is a symbol of what is loving or good and wine is a symbol of wisdom or truth. These are our spiritual food–what will truly nourish us forever. As Jesus said in the Gospel of John 6: “Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you… I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.”

This Sunday the Holy Supper (communion) will be offered in the service.
