Our Daily Bread Devotional – Celestial Communion


Our Daily Bread Devotional – Celestial Communion

Whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

Today’s Scripture & Insight:

When the Eagle lunar module of Apollo 11 landed on the moon’s Sea of Tranquility on July 20, 1969, the astronauts took some time to recover from their mission before venturing onto the moon’s surface. Buzz Aldrin had been granted permission to bring bread and wine to take Communion. He tasted the first things ever ingested on the moon after reading Scripture. “I poured the wine into the chalice our church had given me,” he wrote afterwards. The wine curled softly and beautifully up the side of the cup in one-sixth gravity of the moon.” While enjoying this celestial Communion, Aldrin’s acts demonstrated his faith in Christ’s atonement on the cross and the certainty of His second coming.

The apostle Paul reminds us that Jesus sat with His disciples “on the night he was betrayed” (1 Corinthians 11:23). Christ likened His soon-to-be-sacrificed body to bread (v. 24). He declared the wine to be a symbol of “the new covenant,” which secured our forgiveness and redemption through the shedding of His blood on the cross (v. 25). Whenever and wherever we receive Communion, we are announcing our faith in the reality of Jesus’ sacrifice and our expectation of His promised second coming (v. 26).


We can confidently celebrate our faith in the one and only raised and returning Savior, Jesus Christ, no matter where we are.

Reflect & Pray

What has hindered you from taking Communion in prayerful recollection of Christ? How do you feel knowing that another Christian took Communion to honor Jesus on the moon?

Please, Jesus, enable me to live boldly for You until You return!
