A Scarecrow in a Melon Patch

That’s why I also love and need the communion table. The bread and wine remind me that my idolatrous tendencies were nailed to the cross and that I’m risen with Christ with a new identity and a new object of worship: Jesus Christ himself! I urge you to use your communion time to examine your heart and make sure you haven’t allowed anything else to replace the Lord’s rightful place as your King.

Let’s burn the scarecrow. Let’s refuse to bow before anyone or anything else—including ministry—except God alone. For He is the only one worthy of our praise.

As a side note, why am I suddenly hungry for watermelon?
