The Last Supper #Communion

And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. Matthew 26:26

Today Communion has turned into a ritual rather than a moment to “commune” with The Lord. Jesus came to not give us a new religion but a relationship with God. Communion is a way we have a personal encounter with God. Come sit at the Lords Table and have a meal with him

Often in Communion services, we get herded like cattle to move through like an assembly line just to get done the deed to check it off the list. This is not what Jesus had in mind, he wanted us to slow down and commune with him. As the Apostle Paul said we should “Examine Ourselves” while we are at the Lords Table. (1 Corinthians 11:28)

The broken bread, as we know, is representative of the broken body of Jesus on the cross. By His Stripes We Are Healed! (Isaiah 53) What a beautiful gift Christ has given us, the gift that only He could provide and nobody else

And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. Matthew 26:27-28

The wine is obviously symbolic of Christ blood he shed for us! Notice his blood is a sign, a sign of the New Covenant (Testament). The words Testament and Covenant basically mean the same thing, that’s why the Bible is split between the Old Testament (Old Covenant) and New Testament (New Covenant)

When you take Communion, you are declaring that you are part of the New Covenant. Just as circumcision was a sign of the Old Covenant, Christ blood is the sign of the New Covenant. Are you covered by the blood of The Lamb?

So next time you take Communion, don’t just rush through it, examine yourself. Take time to Commune with The Lord, receive his gifts, and give him all the praise and glory he deserves!

    Regarding Communion and the Love Feast Service that is associated with it (feet washing, bread, cup of blessing, holy kiss), an old Brethren once told me, “This is the closest we can get to God on this side of Heaven.” Just a very special experience in Jesus’ name.

      Amen Ron! I would totally agree with him! Yes I think Communion is to have that personal experience with God here on Earth, as you said

      Great to hear from you! Hope you and your family are doing well and staying safe! Praying for you all!
