Freedom from the Feast

They thought it was just another Passover feast.  The disciples had no idea what was about to happen.  But today, we take a moment to remember this last supper.

Take, Eat.  This is my body….  Drink this, all of you. Matthew 26:27-27 MSG

We remind ourselves of this communion Jesus had with his disciples every time we experience the bread and wine at our own churches.

Do we need to remember it more?

So much of my own struggle with my health and wellness involves food. I can’t help but wonder if it’s the same for you gals….is it?

My mind has gotten so wrapped up in getting healthy and losing weight, that my view of food has been skewed.  Food has become truly my enemy.  Food has become an idol, set upon a pedestal.

Thankfully, this season of Lent, I’ve been able to step away and reconcile this relationship with food. Now, on my journey, I am trying to see it as God’s gift to me.  It’s the fuel my body runs on.  I eat when I’m hungry and refrain when I’m not.

Food no longer has a hold on me.  I have found freedom in the cross, in the communion of the passover feast, and in Jesus Christ Himself.

Do you need to come face to face with Jesus?  Do you need to sit at the table of the Passover feast?  He has given us His body and blood, He gave His life on the cross for us, so we may live free.

Do you have that freedom?

Each Thursday we join up here at Must Love God to create community.  We are not in this alone, together we can achieve our goals.  Those God sized dreams can become a reality.

Let us know how you’re doing.  Either comment here or write a post and link it up.  All we ask is that you add the CMA button and give the other sisters some comment love!!
