What is the Holy Communion?
Holy Communion is the “Lord’s Supper.”
The term was derived from 1 Corinthians 11:20. It shows that the Lord established this supper. It is also called “the Lord’s table” (1 Cor 10:21) and the “breaking of bread” (Acts 2:42).
Breaking the bread during Holy Communion
The Bible also records of breaking bread on other occasions (Acts 27:35; Lk 24:30), these may also refer to the Lord’s supper (Acts 20:7). After Pentecost, the church was founded. Believers were determined to obey the teachings of the disciples. They must have broken bread to commemorate Jesus. The sacrament is now called “the Holy Communion.” “Supper” means that it is to be held in the afternoon or evening.
Holy Communion – “Do this in remembrance of Me.”
Luke 22:19 – Jesus said, “This is my body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”
The Lord provided the bread and cup of the Holy Communion for us – not the other way around. We must prepare them according to the Lord’s instruction (Mt 26:17-19).
Jesus is the Lord of the Holy Communion. He said, “Take and eat,” “drink it” (Mt 26:26-27). The only thing we can do is to approach Him with a thankful heart and accept His providence.
