Yesterday afternoon I had the privilege of taking communion with a group of friends. We were able to remember the sacrifice in Jesus giving His life for the redemption of our sins. We remembered with gratitude and thanks. There is no greater sacrifice and no thanks on our part that can ever be too much.

On the morning of that same day I visited my friend who was dying. I looked at her lying almost unconscious in her hospital bed with her daughter sitting beside her and I realised she would never again be taking communion in our group as she had so often in the past.

Then another thought struck me. In no time at all she would be having communion in heaven. I’m not sure how they would celebrate up there, but she will be in the presence of her beloved Saviour. How wonderful for her. By the time you read this blog she may well be there. The time will come when we can join her. Oh blessed day!
