Communion as a Reminder of Redemption

1 Corinthians 11:23-26 (NLT)

23 For I pass on to you what I received from the Lord himself. On the night when he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread 24 and gave thanks to God for it. Then he broke it in pieces and said, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way, he took the cup of wine after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant between God and his people—an agreement confirmed with my blood. Do this in remembrance of me as often as you drink it.” 26 For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are announcing the Lord’s death until he comes again.
The act of communion is a powerful reminder of Jesus' sacrifice and the redemption it brings. It connects us to the long history of God's redemptive work, from the Old Testament to the New Testament, and calls us to live out this redemption in our lives. Communion is not just a ritual but a profound expression of our faith and gratitude for the sacrifice of Jesus. It is a moment to reflect on the depth of God's love and the price paid for our salvation, inspiring us to live in a way that honors that sacrifice.
