Communion

On Sunday 14 September the congregation celebrated Communion – what a blessed time we had.

The symbols of bread and wine became real as they pointed, not only to the sacrifice of Jesus Christ where He paid for the sins of lost sinners by dying on the cross of Calvary, but also pointing us to his return.  The words of Jesus in John 6:51 became real to us:

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.” (John 6:51, NIV)

We understood from the Word that God has called us to service in witnessing discipleship to the world as we heard the Word:

Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. (Matthew 26:27–28, NIV)

We did not only look back to the cross-wrought salvation of Christ, but to coming future with Him when He returns:

I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.” (Matthew 26:29, NIV)

It was therefore fitting that we should sing:

  • “Light of the world” (CCLI Song # 3266032)
  • “Consider Christ” (CCLI Song # 1980516)
  • “Oh, the mercy of God” (CCLI Song # 1930937)
  • “How deep the Father’s love for us” (CCLI Song # 1558110)
  • “Glory and power (See Him coming)” (CCLI Song # 4289410)
