Communion

 

This page is designed to be a simple resource and guide to those who would like to experience communion on their own, with their family, with friends, or within a small group.

 

Remember

At the last supper, Jesus said to “Do this in remembrance of me.” (Luke 22:19).

Take some time to remember Jesus – who He is and what He has done in your life.  Below are some songs and scriptures that may help in the process.

Prepare

In 1 Corinthians11, Paul encourages believers to celebrate communion and exhorts us to prepare our hearts and minds for the occasion.  He says, “Examine your motives; test your hearts.  Come to this meal in holy awe.”  (1 Cor 11:28 MES).

Spend some time in prayer.  Act on the verse above.  Examine your motive for celebrating communion.  Is there sin in your life that you haven’t confessed?  Are you at a place where you can experience awe at the privilege of being called a child of God?  Ask God to prepare your heart.

Celebrate

Read the following verse and partake in communion:

For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, 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.”  In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”  For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

Thanksgiving

Spend a little more time in prayer, thanking and praising God for whatever is on your heart.

 

God bless you!
