Filled by the Sacrament

I don't know about you, but one little piece of bread and one sip of water has never really filled me up. (not that it should).

But in 3 Nephi 18, when Christ administers the sacrament to He disciples and to the multitude, the scriptures say the disciples and the multitude "had eaten and were filled" and then later "they did drink, and they were filled."

Apparently taking the sacrament "filled" the Nephites. Filled their bellies? Probably not. I imagine that what the scriptures mean here is that the were "filled" with the Spirit of Christ and with the covenant they were making with the Father to "always remember" Christ.

Do you ever feel "filled" when you take the sacrament? Do you take the sacrament while thinking about the promise that you are making to "always remember Him"?

  1. Last Fast Sunday I made a concious decision to fast. So I did and during sacrament I was praying in my heart and enjoying the spirit. I took my bread and ate it and drank the water. I felt that at that moment my fast was done and I felt refreshed by the water and the bread tasted good and felt good in my stomach. So I believe I was "filled up" with the combination of the Holy Spirit and the water and bread.
    I know that I was able to finish out the day with having hunger pains.
    Thanks for this post Becca
