My Daily Bread- a poem
During Christian church services, and in the Catholic Church there is the practice of Holy Communion. It represents what Christ Jesus experienced before he went to Calvary for his death on the cross. It was Jesus' last time to bond with his apostles, so he shared a meal with them. He represented the Father God in heaven, who allowed Jesus to change the bread and the wine into his body and his blood. This writer interpreted this miracle as that we become like Him, as we receive His being within. It represents a union between human and Christ's Spirit.
Receiving communion daily as a part of devotion and prayer to the Lord is very fulfilling. If one does not confess one's sins and acknoweledge Christ Jesus as our Savior will bring condemnation to one's soul, so it has been told. It is always best to pray the Lord's Prayer, which is in the bible in the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 6, verses 9-13:
"Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day, our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen."
I have ended my rest
Now it is time to fill
My soul with energy.
Time to break the fast
That swept me from dreams
Of the night
To wakefulness of the day.
The choice to sacrifice the
First taste of my palate is
To take a holy communion.
I recognize that it represents
The greatest act of devotion that
The Son of God ever gave to us.
Then daily communion along with
The will to forgive as He forgave us,
Is the greatest thanks we can give
Our Lord Jesus.
So as I take my morsel of bread
And raise my cup,
I honor Him, then I
Know that the Lord
Will Honor me.
My daily devotion is
Not complete until I confess
With my mouth that Jesus
Died for my sins and I believe
That He is the answer to
