God was in Christ: taste and see that God is Good

leave a comment »

Often in worship service thoughts come into my head and I just write some on the bulletin. Today right after the lector read Galatians 5: 14-15: “‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ If, however, you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another.” That made me think of Holy Communion. God became a human being in Jesus Christ and knowing the radical evil in us, he offered himself for us to devour and to consume so that we might be forgiven, come to our senses and eat and drink at the table together sharing love.
