Communion

Date: Sunday, January 07, 2018 - Sunday, December 30, 2018
Time: 10:30 AM -
Location: HNC

  • We observe Communion because the Lord told us to. We are to obey His commands. In observing Communion we are remembering Christ and all that He has done for us in His 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:
    "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)
