Consider John 3:16. At the center of our faith is the understanding of the giving of the Son.
The way that God fixes things is not through power and empire but through Jesus, a broken man on a donkey. It is a power that does not coerce with a sword but serves with a towel.
And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, “This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.”
Maybe He meant do this – do what you have seen Me doing. Be a living Eucharist.Â Think of the Eucharist not just as a ritual but as a way of life. Eucharist means “be thankful.”
Whenever you serve, you are breaking your body and pouring your blood. It is Jesus through us.
The Eucharist is not a product. Everybody has to ask the difficult question, “How can I be a Eucharist?” There is danger in churches copying what other churches are doing because it is not their Eucharist.
If your church was removed from your community, who would protest?
