Luke 23:20-21

Luke 19:28-40

John 12:12-19

Matt 26:17-35

We observe Communion because the Lord told us to.

We are to obey His commands: 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 Cor 11:24

In observing Communion we are remembering Christ and all that He has done for us in His life, death, and resurrection.

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 Cor 11:24

When observing Communion we take time to examine ourselves.

“A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup.” – 1 Cor 11:28

In observing Communion we are proclaiming His death until He comes.

“It is, then, a statement of faith: For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.” – 1 Cor 11:26
