February 2, 2020: Jesus - Eternal Bread of Life...
“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 take communion, it symbolizes the sacrifice Jesus made on our behalf. The wine and the bread in communion represent the blood and body of Jesus that was poured out and broken as a sacrifice for our gift of salvation.
No gift can out measure the weight, importance, and sacrifice of Jesus’ death on the cross. When we celebrate communion, or the Lord’s Supper, we remember the gift of salvation Jesus gave each one of us.
Life's most significant truths are not spoken but are acted out. In the Communion Service, we act out what we believe about the Lord Jesus Christ and His finished work. (Stephen Olford)
The Lord's Supper was instituted by Christ Himself to provide a means whereby we might demonstrate our faith, hope and love to the audiences of heaven and earth until He returns.
