The Sacrament of the Altar (Lord’s Supper) is a priceless gift from God. Through the body and blood of Jesus Christ the repentant sinner receives forgiveness of sins. The Supper builds and strengthens the believer’s faith. Attendance at the Lord’s Supper is a good spiritual barometer of your spiritual life. Disregard of the Lord’s Supper is a sure sign of spiritual decay. Although Jesus did not say how often we should receive the Sacrament, He did say “often.” As the Lord feeds us, He draws us to a closer relationship with Him and with one another.
Matthew 26:26–28 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.” Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. “For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.”
1 Corinthians 10:16–17 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread.
