He took bread…And their eyes were opened, and they knew him.

Luke 24:30–31

What a sweet comfort to us that our Lord Jesus Christ was once known in the breaking of the bread. In earlier Christian times, believers called Communion “the medicine of immortality,” and God gave them the desire to pray:

Be known to us in breaking bread,

But do not then depart;

Savior, abide with us and spread

Thy table in our heart.

Some churches have a teaching that you will find God only at their table—and that you leave God there when you leave. I am so glad that God has given us light. We may take the Presence of the table with us.

Then sup with us in love divine,

Thy body and Thy blood;

That living bread and heavenly wine

Be our immortal food!

In approaching the table of our Lord, we dare not forget the cost to our elder Brother, the Man who was from heaven. He is our Savior; He is our Passover!

Lord, just as You promised Moses that Your “Presence” would go with him (see Exodus 33:14), I pray that Your Presence will go with me wherever You lead. I will not go without You, dear Lord.[1]
