Please, Sir, I want some more

As I thought about communion, a scene from a book came to mind.

Did you ever read Oliver Twist or see the movie?  Remember the scene when the orphan, Oliver, approaches the adult and says, "Please, sir, I want some more."

At an Emmaus team meeting yesterday, the spiritual leader of the walk told us that the work that the team must do could not be done on our own.  We need Christ to be able to move forward with us.  We need to take him in through communion, through our relationship with him, so that we would be strengthened and equipped for the task at hand.  And then he served us communion.

Have you ever approached communion with the feeling, "Please, sir, I want some more?"

Christ always provides, always answers, "Yes."  He yearns for us to ask, and gladly provides.
