    There are many different ways of celebrating communion, and one way is not necessarily better than another. But we should be careful that all that we do has a biblical basis, and so here are some of the things that we do and why we do them. A. Regularly – once a month. First of all, we celebrate communion regularly. For us, that means once a.   Sister Lucia, the last visionary of Fatima writes in her book “Calls” about the Eucharist:”If we do not receive the food of Holy Communion, we shall not have within us the life of grace, the supernatural life that depends on our union with Christ through receiving His .

      The New Covenant replaced the Old Covenant when Christ, the Passover Lamb (1 Corinthians ), was sacrificed (Hebrews ). The sacrificial system was no longer needed (Hebrews ). The Lord’s Supper/Christian Communion is a remembrance of what Christ did for us and a celebration of what we receive as a result of His sacrifice. They are part of what we are all doing together, so they are welcome to receive." 'Open communion' "Ecumenically, the term 'open communion' means that all of the baptized are welcome to receive," explains the Rev. Taylor Burton-Edwards, director of worship resources with Discipleship Ministries.

    • Today we are going to explain why we take communion, we will not dive into all the disputes over the centuries concerning communion, but rather we will examine three areas concerning communion that will help us to understand why we take communion each week at FCC. • Let’s begin by turning to 1 Corinthians We will begin with.   The Eucharist, in short, changes us. We do not just receive a symbol of our Lord. We receive him in actuality. He then lives inside us. Ways to Receive. There are different ways to receive him and there are merits to all of them. Most importantly we must receive him reverently. The host is something of value. It is no longer a piece of bread.

Christian Communion - Biblical Views and Observances. Do you still have questions about why Communion is so important. Why do we take Communion. What Does God say about Communion. How do we take Communion. Kenneth Copeland Ministries takes the Word of God as final authority in every area of life, so when we have a question, we go to God’s Word.

That’s where we get God’s direction. Every time we gather around bread and wine, in church or in our homes, we remember Jesus is the one who provides all we need. Why Christians Do Communion It’s not about the bread and wine; it’s about the body and blood of Jesus.

That is why the Bible says by His stripes, we are healed (Isaiah1 Peter ). In LukeJesus tells us that the cup is the “new covenant in My blood”, and the apostle Paul tells us that the blood of Jesus brings forgiveness of sins (ColossiansEphesians ).

Why Do Believers Partake Of The Holy Communion. “Why do we insist on receiving Communion standing and on the hand?,” the Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship asks. The manner in which Author: Diane Montagna.

And when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, "This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me." We receive the Holy Eucharist in remembrance of Christ also to that he broke. Among members of God’s family, we find comfort and support, just as the disciples and the early church did.

The Lord’s Supper is a good time to stop and recall. We observe Communion because the Lord told us are to obey His commands: And when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me." 1 Corinthians ; In observing Communion we are remembering Christ and all that He has done for us in his life, death and resurrection: And when he had given thanks, he broke it.

When we move in procession, particularly the procession to receive the Body and Blood of Christ in Communion, we are a sign, a symbol of that pilgrim Church "on the way." For some, however, the experience of the Communion Procession is far more prosaic, analogous perhaps to standing in line in the supermarket or at the motor vehicle bureau.

We also learn that we must take the Holy Communion since only with the life of Christ in us, we have eternal life and will resurrect on the last day. Scriptures teach us that through Holy Communion, we also connect with Jesus Christ not only in the memory of his death, but in the spiritual life he gives to us.

The Book of Acts provides some guidance on this issue. Notably, Acts states that Jesus’ disciples met daily and “broke bread,” which some have interpreted to mean that Holy Communion was practiced daily.

Further, Acts states that the disciples “came together to break bread” on the first day of the week, i.e. Sunday — an argument in favor of weekly : Dolores Smyth. The sacrament of Communion seems a bit odd from our modern eyes.

Many of us are given a cardboard-flavored wafer and barely enough grape juice to get our mouths wet, and then someone reads these words: “‘This is my body which is for you.

Do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way also [Jesus] took the cup, after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood. After receiving Communion we wipe our lips carefully with the Communion cloth (not on our hand or shirtsleeve), make the sign of the cross, and hand the Communion cloth to the next person.

We are always careful that we do not allow Communion to fall from the communion spoon or from our lips onto our clothing or to the : Alyssa Roat. WE NEED TO REALIGN OUR HOPE. The third thing that we see in the institution of Communion is an opportunity to realign our hopes in the future that Christ brings.

We all crave hope; hope is the fuel that makes life worth living. As we observe the sacrament of Communion an incredible opportunity unveils itself. The manner of receiving holy Communion How we handle objects says a lot about how we regard them. When looking at fine jewelry, for example, we are mindful to handle the gems carefully.

Since Jesus first instituted the Lord’s Supper (or Communion) on the night before his death, Christians around the world have participated in the practice of Holy Communion. There is a mystery and significance to communion that makes it worthy of additional study and instruction.

Why do we celebrate the Lord’s Supper. Holy Communion is not just a member privilege the Catholic Church offers to Catholics.

It is an expression of the pre-existing reality that the communicant believes the Eucharist is the Body and. Once we are baptized, regardless of our age, we are welcome to receive Communion.

Our Book of Common Prayer (p. ) indicates that, at the time of Baptism, we receive the inward and spiritual grace of union with Christ in his death and resurrection, birth into God’s family (the Church), forgiveness of sins, and new life in the Holy Spirit.

Catholics believe that when we receive Holy Communion we are actually receiving the very Body and Blood of Jesus Christ Himself. Think about it - the God of the Universe humbling Himself to become. Those six words, and the Apostle Paul’s reminder in 1 Corinthiansare the motivation for why we take communion together as Jesus followers.

Jesus asked us to carry out this simple tradition to remember that He gave His life for our lives. That He was poured out to wash away our sins. Like baptism, communion is a spiritual symbol and.

In this Q&A, "Should we take communion every Sunday?" you will discover the meaning of the phrase "break bread" in Acts You will discover that the Bible does not provide any guidelines as to how often communion should be taken. Communion can bless or hurt you.

Pastor Mike explains. Join us for a more in-depth discussion on our Facebook group! Besides being called the Lord’s Supper (1 Cor. ), it is also often referred to as communion. This is due to the fact that in 1 Corinthiansthe bread and the cup are understood to be a “communion” or “sharing” in and with Christ.

Communion, or common union.
