Hello friends! We get to celebrate Communion
together as part of our service today. It’s our desire that we would be drawn closer to God during our experience together. Jesus said that we should “do this to remember Him.” He was saying that He wanted those who follow Him to set aside time to remember what He had done for them. This is a way to have our hearts renewed and return to Him as our first love.
When we get to the time of Communion this morning, we ask those who at some point accepted Jesus’ offer of forgiveness and new life to take a cup of the juice and a piece of the bread from the plate as it passes. If you have not yet chosen to receive Jesus’ offer, please just pass the plate on and observe. Someday when you do choose Jesus, you can feel the freedom to participate.
I want to remind you that you can choose Him today. I will give you a chance to do that when we get to the Communion portion of the service. When you pray and ask for forgiveness and cleansing, then by all means take part in the Communion observance.
