A communion meditation is a short message that priests or pastors give to their congregation before they take the Holy Communion. It usually focuses on Jesus and his sacrifice on the cross, and it helps the congregants understand what this means for them.
Observing the Lord’s Supper is an important part of many Christians’ religious practice. It is a time to honor Jesus and his sacrifice for our sins, to reflect on our own relationship with him, and to renew our faith in him.
One of the most difficult parts of observing the Lord’s Supper is preparing an effective meditation for the congregation. Unlike most other devotional comments, this is an ongoing event and most spiritual leaders find it hard to keep the meditations fresh and new.
The key to successful communion meditations is a simple message that congregants can remember easily and which helps them to focus on Jesus’ sacrifice for their sins. It should also be brief (usually no more than four or five minutes).
