The Lord’s Tidbit or The Full Meal Deal?

I’m trying to align today’s “going to church experience” with the Church of old. I like the symbolism of the Lord’s Supper shared today. There is a small piece of cracker that represents Christ’s body and a thimble of grape juice to represent His blood. Together they remind us of what He did for us on the cross. It is a solemn event that helps realign me with the significance of Jesus’ actions on my life.

But I wonder about the Lord’s supper of the Bible. It speaks of gluttony and drunkenness. Obviously, you won’t eat too much cracker or drink too much grape juice in the Lord’s supper I take part in. I wonder what it would be like to have a Lord’s Supper remembrance where you got the “Full Meal Deal”? I can imagine roast beef, mash potatoes, fried okra and a big ol’ juicy “corn on the cob”. I’d finish it off with Blackberry cobbler and home made ice cream.

What do you think? Does God care if we get a “tidbit” or the “full meal deal”? I can almost imagine God looking down and shaking His head while grinning at us eating crackers when He blessed us with so much more. I don’t know. Just thinking…

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
