2. The practice in the life of Jesus.

The bible records that in the same night that Jesus was to be arrested, He took bread and when He had given thanks, He said, “…Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.” This means we are to break bread for a remembrance or as an act of proclamation of Jesus Christ, after the same manner. 

The cup that contains the wine is the symbol of the emblem of the blood. Jesus took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it in remembrance of me.” This shows that there is no limit to how often you can take the communion. In Acts chapter 2, the apostles broke bread daily from house to house and by Acts chapter 20, they could only break bread when they gathered together because the congregation had grown to a large number and the apostles could no longer cover each house daily.  

Exodus 12 tells the origin of the communion. It was referred to as the Passover in the Old Testament. Whatever the Passover did for the children of Israel in the Old Testament is what the bread and the wine does for us today. 

 
PRAYER: Lord, awaken in me a deep understanding of the power of the Holy Communion you have made available to me in Jesus’ name. Amen!
