In addition to this short communion message, I have provided a simple communion message.
And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.
When we eat the bread we remember Jesus’ life and death.
In Jesus’ life He:
- Was merciful to people.
- He loved people.
- He cared for people that nobody else cared for.
- He served people.
In Jesus’ death He:
- Was submissive.
- He was the most merciful.
Why was He submissive? Because He chose to die.
Why was He the most merciful? Because He died for us.
20: After supper he took another cup of wine and said, “This cup is the new covenant between God and his people—an agreement confirmed with my blood, which is poured out as a sacrifice for you.
Because Jesus died we can be joined together with God. We don’t live in the old covenant. The old covenant is about keeping rules. If we belong to Jesus then we live in the new covenant. The new covenant is about accepting God’s mercy.
