The Lords Supper is something we as believer MUST do! One of the devils tricks is to keep Christians FROM taking Communion because of guilt from sin, but Communion is instituted to HELP us deal with sin! Self examination is the primary purpose of taking Communion.

life, death and resurrection:
And when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me."
1 Corinthians 11:24 (NIV)

  • When observing Communion we take time to examine ourselves:
    A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup.
    1 Corinthians 11:28 (NIV)

  • In observing Communion we are proclaiming His death until He comes. It is, then, a statement of faith:
    For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.
    1 Corinthians 11:26 (NIV)
    • When we observe Communion we show our participation in the body of Christ. His life becomes our life and we become members of each other:
      Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ? Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf.
      1 Corinthians 10:16-17 (NIV)
