The House of Bread

Eric Ludy Sermon Podcast: Church at Ellerslie show

Summary: In our western world, very few of us understand the meaning of covenant. And thusly, we struggle to fully comprehend the covenant meal, known in Scripture as “the Lord's Deipnon,” or “the Lord's Supper.” And the strangest thing about it is that the meal Jesus was referring to wasn't bread and wine—the meal was Jesus, Himself, and the bread and wine were merely symbols of his body and blood. Jesus was saying, "My body is real food, and my blood is real drink." And unless we partake of Jesus, we can have no part in Him. Jesus is meant to enter into our bodies, to be digested into our inner man, to come in and wholly alter us. He was the body of God made food. And we are called to follow His example and feed a spiritually hungry world with our obedient lives.
