TEACHING [Past posts below]

Today I did not plan to teach- my daughter had the flu and I was just going to go to church and take a rest.

I didn’t get a chance to review any verses- but had the thought of speaking about communion.

I wound up going to the Catholic Mass and of course received communion [I never rejected my Catholic upbringing- so I am able to partake].

The Mass I attended was the Spanish Mass- so I really have no idea what the verses would be for this Sunday.

I spoke briefly on the ordinance/sacrament of Communion [Eucharist] and how Jesus gave us this ordinance- for us to remember his death-

Luke 22:19

And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

The bible speaks of the love of God shown toward us- because Christ died for us-

Romans 5:8

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Christians have debated over the remembrance of the death of Jesus- about how the various Crosses/Crucifixes should depict Christ-

I talked about this on the video.

Some say we should focus on the Resurrection of Christ- which of course is true.

But Jesus never gave us a specific ordinance to remember the Resurrection.

We of course do celebrate it once a year as Christians- but there is no specific ordinance like the Communion table-

1 Corinthians 11:24

And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: THIS DO in remembrance of me.

The death of Jesus shows the Love that God has towards us- there are many verses that connect the fact that Christ died for us- proving he loved us-

The most famous verse of all- which just happened to be one of the chapters I spoke about today- is-

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that HE GAVE his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

The love of God is displayed because he gave his son.

I also talked about the history of this sacrament- and will try and add the past teachings I did on this below.

But for this day- we remember that Christ died for us-

And in so doing- he showed us how much he loved us-

John 15:13[Full Chapter]

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. [some sites- see the rest here- ]
