COMMUNION - A look backward to remember God’s gift

SCRIPTURES
1 Corinthians 11:23-26 | 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 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.” 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.” For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are announcing the Lord’s death until he comes again.

Matthew 26:26-30 | As they were eating, Jesus took some bread and blessed it. Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples, saying, “Take this and eat it, for this is my body.” And he took a cup of wine and gave thanks to God for it. He gave it to them and said, “Each of you drink from it, for this is my blood, which confirms the covenant between God and his people. It is poured out as a sacrifice to forgive the sins of many. Mark my words—I will not drink wine again until the day I drink it new with you in my Father’s Kingdom.” Then they sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives.

Psalm 143:5 | I remember the days of old. I ponder all your great works and think about what you have done.

DISCUSSION
  1. How does communion represent the death of Jesus?  
  2. Why would we want to remember the death of Jesus?
  3. How does remembering Gods gift of Jesus change the way you live?
  4. How often do you think about Gods gift of Jesus? How can you remember (and thank God for) it more often?
