Words I love to hear…

I noticed on Sunday that both deacons who prayed at communion used the phrase “we have been reminded this morning…” I love to hear this phrase in communion prayers because it means that people are making connections between the Sermon and the Supper, the Message and the Meal!

We should always be able to pray “we have been reminded this morning” as we give thanks for the bread and the wine, as every message should be a Gospel message. That is, every message; whether its on salvation by grace through faith, the role of church leaders, hospitality, or an Old Testament story, every message should relate clearly to the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.
