The Lord’s Supper and How To Lead It
Jesus said - “I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”
Holy Communion or “The Lord’s Supper” is a way to celebrate our intimate connection and ongoing relationship with Jesus.
Here’s a simple way to celebrate --
When you gather as followers of Jesus, spend time in quiet meditation, silently considering and confessing your sins. When you are ready, have someone read this passage from scripture --
“For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 1 Corinthians 11:23-24
Pass out bread you have set aside for your group, and eat. Continue the reading --
“In the same way, He took the cup also after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.’” 1 Corinthians 11:25
Share the juice or wine you have set aside for your group, and drink. Finish the reading --
“For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.” 1 Corinthians 11:26
Celebrate in prayer or singing. You have shared in The Lord’s Supper. You are His, and He is yours!
