As this year draws to a close, our hearts rejoice as we turn our attention to our Savior, and with a New Year approaching, what better way to renew our bond with Jesus and each other, than to celebrate the Lord’s Supper?
God instituted the Passover Supper as a yearly commemoration of the deliverance He provided from Egyptian bondage, and year after year, children were told about this miraculous event, keeping it fresh in every mind. In the same way, Jesus gave us the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper to commemorate the great deliverance He provided through His death on the cross, asking us to celebrate this great event until He comes in clouds of glory!Jesus invites each of us to take these symbols of His sacrifice for our sins, and His invitation is open to all who claim Him as their Master.
In preparation for this, each of us go through a time of soul-searching, and repentance. Then, with uplifted souls, we take part in Communion with the assurance that our sins are forgiven. Our Lord instructed us to wash one another’s feet in John 13:13–17, and to partake in the symbols of His body and His blood. As we carefully follow His instructions, we are brought into a holy relationship with each other, and we are empowered to be of greater service to those around us.
Our world is full of those who need our ministry. Everywhere we see the poor, the helpless, and those who are ignorant about salvation, and when we commune with Christ, we go forth to minister as He did!
We invite you to join us for a very special Communion Service to be broadcast on 3ABN television December 31 at 6:00 p.m. and again at 9:00 p.m. Central Standard Time (UTC–6). For some of you, this will be your first opportunity in many months to commemorate the Lord’s Supper with fellow Christians. Whether you live too far away from a church, or whether you’re unable to get around, we’re honored to have you with us, believing that we will meet each of you at the great banquet table in Heaven!
Jesus said in John 13:17, “If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them”!
