And when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” 1 Corinthians 11:24-25
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1
There is only one God. He exists eternally in three persons. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit existed in a perfect loving relationship since before time began.
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:27
Jesus created us in His image and likeness. Jesus created us to join Him in the perfect loving relationship He existed in since before time began. Jesus created us to be loved by Him as only He can love us. Jesus created us to love Him as only we can love Him!
Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper to remind us that we were created to join Him in a perfect loving relationship. Christianity is not a religion. It is a love story. The main characters in this love story are Almighty God and you!
God the Father sacrificed the Son He has loved since before time began for you. He sent the Holy Spirit whom He loves without measure to empower you. He sent the Holy Spirit whom He loves without measure to lead you and guide you into His perfect will for your life!
Communion is so special and sacred Jesus will not partake of it again until we sit at His table in eternity. Jesus will not partake of the fruit of the vine again until He has delivered His spotless bride (me and you) as a gift to His Father!
Jesus is speaking to you today. He is saying, “Take, eat; this is my body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”
Take the bread in remembrance of God’s great love for you. Take it in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice for you. Remember that one day you will break bread with Jesus is His Father’s house!
“This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
Take the wine and remember that Jesus shed His blood so you can live an abundant life. Remember that Jesus wants to fill you with the fruits of His righteousness. Remember that Jesus will not partake of the fruit of the vine again until you join Him in His Father’s house!
Remember that you were created to live in a perfect loving relationship with Almighty God!
