COMMUNION

A Simple Guide for Communion at Home

Participating in Communion is considered a privilege for believers. It is both a somber reflection andh beautiful celebration of Christ’s sacrifice for all who put their faith in him.

For those desiring to participate in Communion outside of church services, here are the basic requirements:

  1. Have the Communion elements (bread/wafer for Christ’s body) and wine/juice (for Christ’s blood)

  2. Search your heart for unconfessed sin (1 Corinthians 11:23-30). 

  3. Confess your sin to God (1 John 1:9). 

  4. If there is unresolved conflict in your life, seek reconciliation (Matthew 5:23).

  5. Reflect on all Jesus did and went through to pay the penalty for your sin (1 Corinthians 11:23-30).

  6. Read Matthew 26:26-28 or 1 Corinthians 11:23-30. 

  7. Continue in prayer as the Holy Spirit leads and give thanks for the body and blood of the Lord that was shed for you (1 Thessalonians 5:18).

  8. Partake of the bread, which symbolizes Jesus body. 

  9. Partake of the cup which symbolizes Jesus shed blood.

 

What shall wash away my sin?

Nothing but the blood of Jesus. 

What shall make me whole again?

Nothing but the blood of Jesus. 

 

Peace...
