Communion is a time of proclaiming the Lord’s death and all that it means to Christians. When we take communion, we are proclaiming the death of Christ, the atonement for our sins, and His resurrection. Because of Christ’s death and resurrection, we who have received forgiveness of sin are now resurrected into a new life of joy and peace. Because of his death we have life. Because of his obedience, we are set free. Because of his sacrifice we are forgiven. Communion is also a time of looking forward to the time when Christ will return. We must be ready. Are you ready to meet the LORD?
1. How should we be living our lives in preparation for Christ’s return? Would the Lord be pleased with the way I am spending my time?
2. What can we do to prepare our hearts to receive communion?
Challenge: Take time to consider your commitment to Him and His purposes as you prepare your heart for the Lord’s service.
