Communion


COMMUNION

Then Jesus took bread. He gave thanks and broke it. He handed it to them and said, “This is my body. It is given for you. Every time you eat it, do it in memory of me.” In the same way, after the supper he took the cup. He said, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. It is poured out for you.” ~ Luke 22:19-20 (NIrV).

When we give thanks for the cup at the Lord’s Supper, aren’t we sharing in the blood of Christ? When we break the bread, aren’t we sharing in the body of Christ? Just as there is one loaf, so we who are many are one body. We all eat from the one loaf.” ~ I Corinthians 10:16-17 (NIrV)

The Lord’s Supper is
     1) a proclamation of the gospel,
     2) the remembrance of Christ,
     3) the feasting on all that God is for us in Jesus;
     4) the savoring of the new covenant promises,
     5) the call to love, and
     6) the call to examine ourselves.

 It is all grace and all mercy for those who believe in Christ Jesus. Sometimes tender and sometimes tough. Sometimes sweet and sometimes severe. But always gracious.
