How real is it that Jesus Christ is King over the earth? It is as real as this Bread and Cup are real. Jesus instructed His disciples to participate in this communion ritual regularly – and therefore all who are baptized into Christ are summoned to come.
But really? Your life doesn’t look like Jesus is King – does it? Both internally and externally you see signs of the reign of unbelief – if Jesus is King, then how can this be? Take and eat, He says; take and drink, He commands.
But how do I really partake – really partake of Jesus’ body and blood – really be nourished and built up to manifest His present reign? You cannot outside of the work of the Holy Spirit. It is by means of the Spirit of Christ that we partake of Christ and so it is here that heaven and earth are truly brought together – it is here first that we experience the new earth, the new Rule, the new kingdom. Come with faith – and taste it.
