Breaking Bread: Communion Opens Our Eyes

Jul 5, 2022

The Significance of Communion

Communion, also known as the Eucharist or the Lord's Supper, is a sacred rite practiced by Christians to commemorate the last supper of Jesus Christ with his disciples. At It Is Well Living Church, we believe that communion carries immense significance as it opens our eyes to deeper spiritual truths.

The Transformative Power of Breaking Bread Together

When we partake in the act of breaking bread together, we enter into a profound moment of connection and unity. It is a time when we remember and honor the sacrifice Jesus made for us on the cross. Through the act of sharing bread and wine, we symbolically share in the body and blood of Christ. This act not only nourishes our physical bodies but also nourishes our souls, renewing our faith and deepening our relationship with God.

Community and Belonging

Communion is not only a personal experience but also a communal one. As we gather as a community at It Is Well Living Church to partake in this sacred ritual, we are reminded of the importance of belonging and fellowship. In communion, we come together as brothers and sisters, united by our shared faith and commitment to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Reflection and Repentance

Communion provides us with an opportunity for deep reflection and self-examination. As we approach the communion table, we are reminded of our own imperfections and shortcomings. It is a moment of humility and repentance, where we ask for forgiveness and seek to align our lives with the teachings of Christ. In this act of remembrance, we open our eyes to areas in our lives that may require transformation and renewal.

The Spiritual Nourishment of Communion

Just as physical food nourishes our bodies, communion nourishes our spirits. Through the symbolic act of partaking in the bread and wine, we receive spiritual sustenance. It is an intimate encounter with the presence of God, experienced through faith and the power of the Holy Spirit. As we partake in communion, our souls are fed, and we find strength, peace, and hope for our journey of faith.

Embracing Unity and Diversity

Communion reminds us of the call to embrace unity and celebrate diversity within the body of Christ. It is an inclusive act that transcends societal divisions and welcomes all believers, irrespective of their backgrounds, cultures, or social status. At It Is Well Living Church, we strive to create a welcoming and inclusive environment where everyone can come together and partake in communion as a testament to our unity in Christ.


Communion holds a deep spiritual significance within the Christian faith. It is a time of connection, reflection, and nourishment. At It Is Well Living Church, we invite you to join us in the transformative experience of breaking bread together. Through communion, our eyes are opened to the profound truths of our faith, and we are reminded of our unity as brothers and sisters in Christ. Experience the power of communion and let it ignite your spiritual journey today.
