Jesus started the tradition of eating bread and drinking wine as an act of remembering Him. This is what Christians call Communion or the Lord’s Supper.
Have you ever thought about Communion as a covenant agreement? A covenant is an agreement two or more people enter; like a contract. Upholding the agreement produces blessings, breaking the contract produces negative consequences. Remembering Jesus’ sacrifice of his body and blood is a way for Christians to remember the blessings the agreement between Jesus and them offer. By implication, it also reminds us of the negative consequences that happen when you live life without the grace and power of Jesus.
Communion reminds you of all the benefits Jesus gives. Not only the eternal benefits but the many benefits he offers for your life on earth. Listen as Pastor Casey explains some of the benefits you receive once you become a Christian.
Scripture references: Luke 22:14-23; 1 Corinthians 11:22-32
