- The Communion is a Spiritual Feast.
- A feast is a celebration.
- We are to celebrate the finished work of Christ.
- The banquet table has been set.
- “God, our Host” as provided all that we need in order to partake of the feast of:
- Access to his throne.
- Aid during our time of need.
- And much more!
- We are to rejoice in what “God our Host” has done for us:
- Sacrificed his body so that we might live anew.
- Gave his blood to be the payment for our sin.
III. We need only to put on the wedding garment of salvation:
- We identify ourselves with his death and resurrection. (Galatians 2:20).
Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: neverthless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Matthew 26: 26-29
Mat 26:26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
Mat 26:27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
Mat 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
Mat 26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.
Conclusion: Luke 22:19 “And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.” We take Communion to remember what Christ has done for us.
