COMMUNION – a group of people who are united by the same, especially religious, beliefs; the Christian ceremony in which people eat bread and drink wine in memory of Christ’s death
Christian Communion is a remembrance of what Christ did for us and a celebration of what we receive as a result of His sacrifice. Celebrating communion marks the story of Jesus, how He gave Himself completely to give us a better life, a new start, and a fresh relationship with God (1 Peter 3:18). It’s not about a ritual to revere, but a person to worship. Jesus is less concerned about the method of celebrating communion and more concerned that we celebrate it.
Scripture: John 6:51
“I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.”
“The exercise of benevolence is joy to loving hearts: the more pain it costs, the more joy it is. Kind actions make us happy, and in such joy we find communion with the great heart of Jesus.”
— Charles Spurgeon
