COMMUNION - Looking outward to proclaim the gospel

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

2 Corinthians 5:17-21 | This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!  And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.

Mark 16:15 | And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.

  1. How is communion related to the gospel (good news of Jesus)?
  2. Why would taking communion motivate (or make us want) to share the gospel?
  3. What does it mean to be God’s ambassador? What does God’s ambassador do (2 Corinthians 5:20)?
  4. We are commanded to tell everyone about Jesus. Who do you still need to share the gospel with? (Be specific!)
