Corinthians 11:26 “For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are announcing the Lord’s death until he comes again.”
There are 3x fundamental things that we need to do before taking the bread and wine
- Look back to the Cross and remember what Jesus did – God gave us his only Son because he loves us unconditionally.
- Look ahead – The New Testament shows that Jesus came as the suffering servant but next time he will be the conquering King!
- Look within – When we eat and drink, we are showing that we live in Christ, and he lives in us.
Therefore before we take communion we need to ask the Holy Spirit to show what needs to be brought to God. As when we examine ourselves, we often find sin but it is simply a reminder that we need God in our lives.
Only Jesus can take your sins away.
