The Bread of Heaven in a Technological World The Lord’s Supper as Sacrament John 6:35, 51-56
Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty....I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world” Then the Jews began to argue sharply among themselves, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you...Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him. Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me. (Jn 6:35, 51-57)
Are You Addicted to Being Online? Do you always check email before doing other things? Do you frequently find yourself anticipating the next time you’ll be online? When you’re online and someone needs you, do you usually say, “just a few more minutes” before stopping? Have you ever lied about or tried to hide how long you’ve been online? Have you ever chosen to spend time online rather than going out with others? Does going online lift you from a depressed or nervous mood? Do others in your life often complain about the amount of time you are spend using technology?
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him. … so the one who feeds on me will live because of me. vv. 56-57
There is no place I would rather be. There is nothing I would rather do. There is no one I would rather be with. This I will remember well.
Almighty God, my heavenly Father, I have sinned against you through my own fault: In thought In word In deed In what I have done In what I have left undone For the sake of your Son our Lord Jesus Christ, forgive me all my offenses; and grant that I may serve you in newness of life, to the glory of your Name. Amen
