A LOOK BACKWARDS (I Corinthians 11:23-25)
A LOOK FORWARD (I Corinthians 11:26)
AN INWARD LOOK (I Corinthians 11:27-30)
AN OUTWARD LOOK (I Corinthians 11:31-34)
Conclusion. The communion service in our churches is a time for remembering the death of Jesus Christ on the cross, but we also need to keep in mind the larger context of the service. We are really remembering the new covenant that Jesus instituted at the Last Supper. At the heart of that covenant is His death, leading to our salvation. Let us come to our next communion service with a humble spirit, examining our lives and judging our own sin. Let us also think consciously about the new covenant, which provides our salvation through Jesus Christ.
