Jesus Lives - The 18 Lessons #12 "Communion"
Brothers and Sisters,
Communion is one of the two ceremonies that Jesus commanded every believer to participate in.
Communion reminds us of the great commission of the Lord Jesus - that He died on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins.
Jesus initiated this ceremony, which His disciples and Christians in every church have performed since the time of the early church.
Jesus took communion only one time with His twelve disciples before He went to the cross.
Let's go to 𝐌𝐚𝐭𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐰 𝟐𝟔:𝟐𝟓-𝟐𝟗 where it says:
"𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐉𝐮𝐝𝐚𝐬, 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐰𝐡𝐨 𝐰𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐛𝐞𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐲 𝐡𝐢𝐦, 𝐬𝐚𝐢𝐝, “𝐒𝐮𝐫𝐞𝐥𝐲 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐝𝐨𝐧’𝐭 𝐦𝐞𝐚𝐧 𝐦𝐞, 𝐑𝐚𝐛𝐛𝐢?” 𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐝, “𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐬𝐚𝐢𝐝 𝐬𝐨.” 𝐖𝐡𝐢𝐥𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠, 𝐉𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐬 𝐭𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐛𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐝, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐡𝐞 𝐡𝐚𝐝 𝐠𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐤𝐬, 𝐡𝐞 𝐛𝐫𝐨𝐤𝐞 𝐢𝐭 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐠𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐢𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐝𝐢𝐬𝐜𝐢𝐩𝐥𝐞𝐬, 𝐬𝐚𝐲𝐢𝐧𝐠, “𝐓𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐞𝐚𝐭; 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐦𝐲 𝐛𝐨𝐝𝐲.” 𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐡𝐞 𝐭𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐚 𝐜𝐮𝐩, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐡𝐞 𝐡𝐚𝐝 𝐠𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐤𝐬, 𝐡𝐞 𝐠𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐢𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐦, 𝐬𝐚𝐲𝐢𝐧𝐠, “𝐃𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐤 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐢𝐭, 𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐨𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮. 𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐦𝐲 𝐛𝐥𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐜𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐚𝐧𝐭, 𝐰𝐡𝐢𝐜𝐡 𝐢𝐬 𝐩𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐞𝐝 𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐲 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐠𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐬. 𝐈 𝐭𝐞𝐥𝐥 𝐲𝐨𝐮, 𝐈 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐝𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐤 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐟𝐫𝐮𝐢𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐧𝐨𝐰 𝐨𝐧 𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐥 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐝𝐚𝐲 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐈 𝐝𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐤 𝐢𝐭 𝐚𝐠𝐚𝐢𝐧 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐢𝐧 𝐦𝐲 𝐅𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫’𝐬 𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐝𝐨𝐦.”.
Because we have already been forgiven by God, we remember Jesusʼ sacrifice when we receive communion and while the bread and the cup are symbols of Jesusʼ body and His blood, it is the command of the Lord Jesus for every Christian to observe communion.
Communion also reminds us of His second coming!
