May we be energizers of love and justice for all.

Psalm 57:8

My heart is steadfast, God, my heart is steadfast. I will sing and chant praise.

When Jesus gave us the Eucharist at the Last Supper, he gave us himself in bread.

He gave us his whole body.

This is indeed an intimate and complete outpouring of self.

And when we receive, we are meant to become the bread.

In other words, we are meant to become Jesus.

His human form was soon to leave the planet.

He was sending his followers to be him in his physical absence.

Eucharist comes from the Greek word that literally means thanksgiving.

When we receive it, we are meant to become thanksgiving to the world.

How are you doing with that?

Or, if you are a practicing Christian who receives Communion in your church, are you making it only a private matter of you getting Jesus and that’s it?

What a difference it would make if Christians actually allowed their Christ to transform them so that they could be Christ to the world!

Perhaps then your heart would be steadfast to share your gifts so that all would experience the unconditional Love that is the Source of all.

I do choose to sing, write, and speak about God’s love as well as to be a listening presence of God’s love to those in need.

What is your heart steadfast in doing to make the world a more compassionate place?
