What about communion?
Communion, The Lord's Supper, was begun and commanded by Jesus Himself. (1 Corinthians 11:23-25) It is celebrated at the altar in the confession and glad confidence that, as He says, our Lord gives into our mouths not only bread and wine but His very body and blood to eat and to drink for the forgiveness of sins and to strengthen our union with Him and with one another. Our Lord invites to His table those who trust in His words, repent of all sin, and set aside any refusal to forgive and love as He forgives and loves us, that they may show forth His death until He comes. We are also called upon to examine ourselves before participating in this holy meal. (cf. 1 Corinthians 10:16; 11:23-29; Matthew 26:28, John 6:53-58)
Q: Do you acknowledge your sins and are you willing to turn from them with the aid and assistance of the Holy Spirit?
A: Yes, I acknowledge my sin and seek the Lord's mercy. (1 John 1:8-9)
Q: Do you believe that God, for Jesus' sake, has forgiven you all your sins?
A: Yes, Christ died for me and suffered the punishment that I deserved. (Isaiah 53:4-6; Romans 6:21-23)
Q: Do you believe that the Lord offers Christians His body and blood, in, with, and under the bread and the wine for the strengthening of faith and the forgiveness of sins?
A: Yes, I believe the Scripture which teaches, "Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ?" (2 Corinthians 10:16)
Q: Why did Jesus willingly sacrifice Himself on behalf of lost and condemned sinners like us?
A: For His great love for the Father and for me and other sinners as it is revealed in John 3, John 11, Romans 5, and 1 John 3.
Q: Should Christians with weak faith receive the Sacrament?
A: The Sacrament is especially offered for those of weak faith. (Isaiah 42:3; John 6:37)
Q: What conditions should cause a Christian to refrain from receiving the Sacrament?
A: Disbelief (Hebrews 11:6), unwillingness to forgive another (Matthew 6:14-15), hatred (John 4:19-21), a refusal to repent ( Acts 17:30), and refusal to recognize the body and blood of the Lord in the Sacrament. (1 Corinthians 11:28-29)
Q: How then, does the Christian live?
A: The entirety of the Christian's life is offered to the Lord as a "living sacrifice." (Romans 12:1-2)
