When you partake of Communion, the body and the blood of Jesus Christ, you partake of the evidence of God’s love, the communication of it. When you put the bread to your lips, listen for the heartbeat of God the Father, loving you. When you lift the cup to your lips, listen for the cry of love on the cross: “Father, it is finished” (John 19:30). Learn to know His love, and to know that He really does forgive you and cleanse you. He gives you His life.
