“Of course, I am an altar server” was my response to the gentleman in the back of the chapel that morning many many years ago. As a child and a Catholic I never truly understood what the question meant. As Catholics we many times don’t speak in the context of these words. I have seen many of my Brothers and Sisters trip and stumble at this question. Being as I now venture into the lands of mainstream evangelical Protestantism, I wanted to prepare myself for this question that will undoubtedly come up. I take this task with great joy and understanding. So with much thinking and talking with God,
Q: Have you accept Christ as your Personal Lord and Savior?
Not only have I accepted my Lord at the time of my confirmation when I received my marching orders for the Lord, but since the time I was able to receive my Lord in His true flesh and blood. See my fellow believer, I follow the strict tradition of the scripture and when my Lord said to us “Unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood you cannot have eternal life,” I believed. Amen Amen is all I can say as I approach my Lord in the metaphysical joy of the Eucharist every Sunday. You see, not only do I pray and accept the Deity of my Lord into my heart and soul, but He has blessed us enough to join in the symbolic pascal feast and accept His TRUE body. Have I accepted Christ? My Brothers and Sisters, I have accepted and heeded the word of my Lord as instructed in John 6, Matthew 26:26-32, Mark 14:22-28, Luke 22:14-20, Luke 28:30-31,35, 1 Corinthians 10:16, 1 Corinthians 11:22-30, Acts of the Apostles 2:46, and Acts of the Apostles 20:7. I hope and pray that one day you to may return to the communion of the Church and join again in the beautiful mystery the Lord instructed us to do. Thank you for asking me about my Savior, yes my Brother, I have accepted.
