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
There is only one God. He exists eternally in three persons. God the Father the Eternal Son of God and the Holy Spirit existed in a perfect loving relationship since before time began.
God created mankind in His image and likeness. He created us to join in His perfect loving relationship. God created us to be loved by Him as only He can love us. He created us to love Him as only we can love Him.
The Lord’s Supper is a reminder that we were created to join God 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 sacrificed the Son whom He loved since before time began for you. He sent the Holy Spirit whom He loves without measure to empower you for service. He sent the Holy Spirit to lead you and guide you into His perfect will!
Communion is so special and sacred to Jesus He will not partake of bread again until we sit at His table in eternity. Jesus will not drink the fruit of the vine until He has delivered His spotless bride as a love gift to our Heavenly Father!
Jesus is speaking to you today.
Jesus 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 today. Remember that Jesus wants to fill you with the fruits of His righteousness. Remember that Jesus will not drink the fruit of the vine until you join Him in eternity!
Remember that you were created to live in a perfect loving relationship with Almighty God today and throughout eternity!
