During the annual Passover feast, Jesus established a powerful tradition that continues to hold immense significance for Christians today: Communion, also known as the Lord's Supper. As described in Matthew 26:26-30, Jesus shared bread with his disciples, saying, "Take, eat; this is my body," which symbolized the body he would soon offer for our salvation. He then lifted a cup of pure grape juice, stating, "Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins," representing the blood He would shed to wash away our transgressions.

This act, witnessed by the disciples, established a lasting legacy. Following Jesus' instruction, "this do in remembrance of me." (1 Corinthians 11:24), the Communion service allows us to:

Remember Christ's Sacrifice:

Reflect on the profound act of love Jesus demonstrated by giving His life for our redemption.

Renew Our Faith:

Strengthen our commitment to following Christ's teachings and living a life devoted to Him.

Experience Christian Unity:

Come together for a sacred observance that portrays the oneness of the Christian body (1 Corinthians 10:16-17).

More Than Just an Action: A Shared Experience

The phrase "We don't DO Communion, we HAVE Communion" captures the essence of this service. It's not merely an act we perform, but a spiritual experience we share together. Participating in Communion reminds us that salvation is attained solely through accepting Jesus' sacrifice by faith (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).

We don't DO Communion, we HAVE Communion

Matthew 26:26-30 KJV

26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. 27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; 28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. 29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom. 30And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.

1 Corinthians 10:16-17 KJV

16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? 17 For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.

1 Corinthians 11:23-26 KJV

23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: 24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. 25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. 26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.
