For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes. 1 Corinthians 11:26
Communion has become an afterthought in Modern Day Christianity. Most Churches will try to fit it in on “special occasions” or holidays. But have we really missed the point of Communion? People call Communion a “Sacrament” meaning ritual however Communion was a commandment from Jesus Christ
Jesus said “Do this in remembrance of Me” (1 Corinthians 11:24, Luke 22:19, Mark 14), so you say “Well I do it occasionally therefor I’m fulfilling it. But your missing the relationship (communion) with Christ, your not proclaiming the Lords death or anticipating his return. These are all parts of the act of Communion
On the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread, Paul began talking to them, intending to leave the next day, and he prolonged his message until midnight. Acts 20:7
Everytime Christians came together to worship in the first Century , they had Communion (broke bread) Sometimes the Christians would meet daily (Acts 2:46) sometimes weekly, but they always had Communion during there worship time. So what did they know or see that we are missing?
Many of us today still celebrate the Resurrection of Christ (Easter) however I think over time we have drifted away from our relationship with Jesus and that glorious day. Communion is a time to reestablish that moment when Christ entered the Upper Room. Our Living Hope by his blood and body of the Passover Lamb.
I’m not a legalist, I’ve been guilty of this my self. However since my family has been doing Communion every service, I feel my relationship with Christ strengthening. The Hope of the Resurrection is continually brought to life, and the thankfulness of his sacrifice pierces my soul. Do this in remembrance of Jesus!
