Communion: The Lord's Supper
1 Corinthians 11:23-34 (NLT)
For I pass on to you what I received from the Lord himself.
On the night when he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took
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
to remember me.” 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 to remember me as often as you
For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you
are announcing the Lord’s death until he comes again.
So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the
Lord unworthily is guilty of sinning against the body and
blood of the Lord. That is why you should examine
yourself before eating the bread and drinking the cup. For
if you eat the bread or drink the cup without honoring the
body of Christ, you are eating and drinking God’s
judgment upon yourself. That is why many of you are
weak and sick and some have even died. But if we would
examine ourselves, we would not be judged by God in
this way. Yet when we are judged by the Lord, we are
being disciplined so that we will not be condemned along
with the world.
So, my dear brothers and sisters, when you gather for the
Lord’s Supper, wait for each other. If you are really hungry,
eat at home so you won’t bring judgment upon
yourselves when you meet together. I’ll give you
instructions about the other matters after I arrive.
use a piece of bread and a cup of 100% grape juice, both have been prayed over and set apart
for this Communion. If you have questions or comments please contact us and let us know!
