Communion The Lord's Supper

It is important that we who believe in
Jesus Christ and who have REPENTED, who have been baptized into Him ,
that we participate in His Body, that we have COMMUNION, with each
other and with Jesus Christ.
I read the words of Jesus as written in
John 6:53
 Jesus therefor said to them,
“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of
Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves. “He
who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will
raise him up on the last day. “For My flesh is true food, and
My blood is true drink. “He who eats My flesh and drinks My
blood abides in Me, and I in him. “As the living Father sent
Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he shall
also live because of Me. “This is the bread which came down
out of heaven; not as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this
bread will live forever.”
The apostle Paul also led the believers
in participating in the Lord's Supper. I read his words from 1
Corinthians 11:23
"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.” 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.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you
proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes."
And that is what we are doing right
here, we are having the Lord's Supper. Let us pray:
Heavenly Father, we thank Thee Lord for
this wonderful privilege that we have to be in Christ. We thank Thee
Lord Jesus that we can participate in this meal, this supper, in
remembrance of Thee, in remembrance of Calvary, in remembrance of the
price that was paid for our salvation and also in the resurrection
through which we have wonderful promises, we have the expectation of
the inheritance of eternal life if we endure with Thee until the very
We thank Thee Lord that we can be ONE
with Thee, that we can be UNITED with Thee in this table by
participating of Thy Body and drinking of Thy blood. We thank Thee
Lord Jesus for this table. We thank Thee for the bread and we thank
Thee for the fruit of the vine, Thy blood, that was shed for us. We
thank Thee Father and we pray Thy blessing on us as we participate in
Thy table, we pray in Jesus' Name.
In the night that the Lord Jesus was
betrayed He took bread and He broke it (breaking the bread) and He
said:"This is My Body that is broken for you, eat of this as
often as you do, in remembrance of Me. (Sharing and eating the bread)
We thank Thee Lord. We thank Thee Lord
Jesus for Thy Body. we thank Thee Lord that we have LIFE in us, we
thank Thee Father.
And after the supper the Lord took the
cup also and He said:"This is the new testament in My blood,
participate of this in remembrance of Me as often as you do so."
We thank Thee Lord Jesus, we thank Thee
for Thy blood that was shed for us and through which we have the
expectation of the inheritance of Thy kingdom, we thank Thee Lord.
(Drinking the wine/grape juice).
Hallelujah Lord Jesus, we thank Thee
Lord for the LIFE that we have in us, we thank Thee Lord for this
table. We thank Thee Lord for Thy Body that was broken for us and
that we can remember Thy suffering, Thy resurrection and that we can
be united with Thee in this table and in our relationship, our
communion with Thee. We thank Thee Father. We bless Thee, we give
Thee all the glory, we thank Thee in Jesus' precious Name. Amen.
