Holy Communion: 6 April 2014

And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying: “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.” — Luke 22: 19–20

Message

Each time we celebrate HolyCommunion, we are to gain anew awareness of the significanceof Christ’s sacrifice.In the Seventh Article of Faith we profess: “I believe that Holy Communion was instituted by the Lord Himself in memory of the once brought, fully valid sacrifice, and bitter suffering and death of Christ.”

Core Points

  • We celebrate Holy Communion in grateful remembrance of the sacrifice of Christ for our redemption.
  • In Holy Communion we feel the presence of Christ in His church.
  • Sincere longing for enduring fellowship with our Lord is our response to the love of Christ.
  • We continue steadfastly in this until the return of Christ.
