One of the last things Jesus Christ did with His disciples was the celebrate Communion. 1 Corinthians 11 tells us that on the night Jesus was betrayed, He took bread and a cup then told the disciples to “do this in remembrance of me.” He told them that the bread represented His body and the cup represented the new covenant. As Christ followers, we participate in this event regularly.
During our first Sunday service of every month we celebrate Communion, or as some call it The Lord’s Supper, and proclaim not only His death and burial, but most importantly His resurrection.
You do not need to be a member of this community of faith to participate, however, you must have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. This is not our command, but Jesus’. Scripture clearly tell us that we should examine ourself before we eat of the bread and drink of the cup so that we do not sin against the Lord. (1 Corinthians 11:27-29)
