This was the final meal He had with His disciples.
“And He (Jesus) took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them saying, ‘This is My body given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.’ In the same way, after the supper He took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is poured out for you’.” (Luke 22: 19-20)
Taking part in Communion is a time for us to draw close to Jesus. It is a command of His that we do this. We must never forget the sacrifice He made so believers can have eternal life with Him.
Communion is not to be taken lightly as just something we do once a month. We need to prepare our hearts and minds for the taking of the bread and juice. We are to be focused on what these elements really symbolize.
The next time you have Communion at your church approach it with a humble heart and with tremendous gratitude for what Jesus did for you.
