The full passage would not fit in the box, but Revelation 3:20 finishes with: “…I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” This is an ancient text which is a part of a larger text believed to have been written by John the Apostle while in exile on the isle of Patmos after receiving a visit from an angel and Jesus himself. Many do not understand Revelation, but it is a book that instructs us on Christian worship, at least in partial. Jesus is saying here that he wishes for us receive his Body and Blood, and by doing so, he will be within us regularly.

Christ wants nothing more than to have a relationship with us. The best way for us to be in communion with him is by actual communion. When we go to the Lord’s table, we are dining with him. This is not a mere symbolic gesture of the Last Supper; this is an intimate, loving way of having Jesus within us, supplying us with the grace we need to carry about our next week. This is why it is important to partake of the Eucharist (comes from the Greek word Eucharistia which means “thanksgiving”) weekly. It is the backbone of the Christian faith, dating all the way back to the early Apostolic Church. Christ beside me, Christ within me!
