Devotional: What is Communion?
Children's Devotion on Communion
This is the last meal Jesus had with His disciples before He was taken away to be crucified, and while sharing this meal with them, He shared the very first communion (Lord’s Supper)
Communion isn't just a piece of bread/wafer and a drink of juice, but the bread represents the body of Jesus and the juice represents the blood of Jesus. The sacrifice of His body and the shedding of His blood is what we remember and is what we thank Him for.
It's a time to reflect on all that Christ did for us, and to recommit our lives afresh to the Lord. It's a time to examine our lives and bring any unconfessed sins to Him to receive forgiveness and cleansing.
There is no age limit to when you can take communion, but it is important that you understand fully what it means. If you do have an understanding of what the bread & juice represent and would like to join in with taking communion, talk it over with your Mum & Dad.
And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, "Take, eat; this is My body." ~ Matthew 26:26 (NKJV)
Lord, I thank you for your body
Sacrificed for me
And I thank you for your blood poured out
That day at Calvary.
