An invitation to eat
1 Corinthians 11 v 23 &24
The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, ‘This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.
It is so easy to become isolated and feel we are all alone, that we cannot do very much by ourselves, or that our power for living is low.
When these times come, remind us indeed that we are part of the greatest enterprise in human history - the church of Jesus Christ, and on the week the General Assembly meets, help us to realise that we are part of something which is infinitely greater than ourselves, and which transcends time itself.
You bid us come to your table to be nourished, fed and revived, but also to commune with you and with each other.
Feed us then with that living bread which brings for us your nearer presence, your grace for living, and a token of the feast that is to come in our Father's house.
