Communion Sunday – Feb. 25

john16_33-communion

Communion, a remembrance initiated by Jesus himself. His words are carved in Communion tables all over the world, “This do in remembrance of me.”

We eat bread and drink juice to remember His tortured body and His innocent blood that was shed because of our sins. We remember the death of the One whose life was not taken from Him. He didn’t just risk His life, He gave it, knowing that He would suffer and die. It wasn’t suicide — but a sacrifice.

Jesus said, “This is my body which is given for you” … His death was not senseless or without purpose, but given — for us.

The purpose of Communion is more than just remembering or even honoring Christ’s death. Communion celebrates that death personally with reverent gratitude and awe.

When Jesus instituted this memorial, of the disciples present only John would be an eyewitness to His suffering and death. The others would have no firsthand memory of the cross. They would only have, like us, a memorial.

In the last 50 years our society has become increasingly urban and fast-paced. As a result of this, to a great degree we have lost the sense of community and belonging enjoyed by past generations. Often individuals feel isolated and all alone.

Many Christians can identify with David in Psalm 142:4: “Look to my right and see; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no-one cares for my life.” Therefore, we believe it is very important for the church to address this need and cultivate a sense of community and belonging through the fellowship ministries of the church.

Acts 2:42 mentions that the early Christians devoted themselves to fellowship:

“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”

It is interesting that they devoted themselves to fellowship in the same way as they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to worship. Fellowship was a high priority in their Christian lives.

Often when a church talks about fellowship, the idea relates only to social situations. While these are an important aspect of fellowship, the biblical concept of fellowship goes far beyond having a dinner or a coffee time together.

Koinonia is the Greek word for fellowship. It is translated in several ways in the New Testament such as “partnership” (Luke 5:10), “participation,” “sharing,” and “fellowship.” The focus of Christian fellowship is not an activity, but a relationship with other believers. The early Christians were not devoting themselves simply to activities, but to a relationship with each other. As believers, they were committed to a community relationship in Christ with each other.

In accordance with these biblical principles of fellowship, we seek to provide opportunities for the development of friendships and a sense of belonging and community.
