Scripture: Luke Denomination: Methodist. One of the interesting facts that we discussed was the accepting of communion. In other words who can and who has the right to take communion. In the United Methodist Church we practice the open communion in that we believe we receive the grace of God freely and everyone should be allowed to gather at the table. One of the subjects was why do people sometimes take the smallest possible amount in the sharing of the body, whether it is the bread, or the juice. The conclusion of the group leaders was that people do not feel worthy enough, to take what God is offering them freely and that is Grace. The words from Simon Peter, struck me when I thought of all the things we discussed at that seminar.

We sinned in heaven and were cast out into the earth, the city of refuge. It is quite natural that we long for our own country. All of us fervently wish to go back to heaven, but we easily forget that we are sinners.
In Luke , after Jesus filled not one, but two boatloads of fish in the middle of the afternoon not exactly peak fishing hours , Peter dropped to his knees with humility in the presence of the Lord Jesus. What caused this reaction was the stark contrast between the greatness of Jesus Christ and the sinful nature of humanity. Individuals of all shapes, sizes, and denominations have been brought to tears with a new-found humility by the works of the LORD. What then, are we to do with this humility and emotion? Are we to harbor it in order to be sustained until our next mission trip? Are we to wait patiently for the next emotional mountain top? What do we need to leave behind? Is it our extra spending cash, our free time, our addictions to television, Smartphones, or Social media?
