In your Legacy Box, we’ve included 2 communion cups. In Luke 22:19-20, we find the first communion – The Lord’s Supper. It says
‘And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.’
Then, in 1 Corinthians 11, Paul references this and reiterates the importance of communion and the power in declaring the Lord’s death and resurrection through this act. One of the most common questions asked about communion is “Does a pastor have to lead me in it?” and “Does it have to be one of the prepared cups?” The answer to both of these question is “no.” Scripture doesn’t require the presence of a pastor or church leader, and it doesn’t give explicit terms on what to use for it. Jesus used what was in front of him – bread and wine. What’s important is remembering and honoring Christ in it.
This Christmas Eve, we’re hosting online and in-person Christmas Eve Communion services. You’re welcome to save your cups for this and join in with us online or in-person at our Tennille Campus. You can learn more about these events at legacy478.com/christmas.
