What is the meaning of Communion and why do it?

Communion is defined as “the sharing or exchanging of intimate thoughts and feelings, especially when the exchange is on a mental or spiritual level.” Communion is sometimes referred to as the Lord’s Supper, Holy Communion, or in some church denominations as Eucharist, or Sacrament.

Essentially, communion is a form of gratitude. While you are asking for guidance through prayer and forgiveness from your sins, communion also serves as a time to remember the blessings. Identifying the blessings, in your life, can serve as a launch pad for a better understanding and outlook for the future.

John 13:12-15 (NKJV)

So, when He had washed their feet, taken His garments, and sat down again, He said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? You call me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.

Those who have shown faith and humility know that Christ loves, and He loves them to the end. Nothing can separate a true believer from the love of Christ. Those who are true believers; demonstrate their love, faith, and devotion 24 hours a day.

We don’t know when our time will come, therefore what we have to do in constant preparation for it, should never be undone. You can’t be a Christian today and a sinner tomorrow and still be in the good graces of God. Make up your mind. You’re a Saint or a sinner.

There are churches that are advocating sin as an acceptable behavior. What is acceptable for us is totally inappropriate to God.

Jesus gave yet another example for us to follow and most of our churches choose to ignore it because they think mankind is too good to be that humble. Why would a bank president want to wash the feet of a homeless person? Why would a bank president, hotel owner, real-estate mogul or any other person of high status want to wash the feet of anyone other than those of their own status?

Why would the King of Kings want to shed His blood to save a sinner like you?
