THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE HOLY COMMUNION

The Holy Communion is a constant reminder of the death of Christ. There are two key aspects that we must remember. One is the great love of Christ demonstrated by His unconditional sacrifice of His life (Rom 5:6–11). It was no mere physical death that He suffered (Mt 10:28; Lk 12:49–50; Mt 16:21; Jn 12:23–25; Heb 10:5; Mt 20:28). Instead, it involved the excruciating experience of being deserted by God while shouldering the sins of humanity (Heb 2:9). Such saving love is beyond anyone’s ability to repay.

The second aspect concerns how—knowing that He has so willingly died for our sins—we should always live for Him and not for ourselves. The knowledge of His unconditional sacrifice should be an internal geyser, propelling those who truly fear and resolutely remain in Him to faithfully serve Him in the way He wants us to. Like Paul (cf. Gal 2:20–21), by partaking of the Holy Communion in truth and in Spirit, we are invigorated and more motivated than before to better ourselves to fulfill the divine purpose that He has for us and His church.

So, what exactly is that purpose? In his message to the church in Corinth, Paul declares succinctly and powerfully: “We proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes” (1 Cor 11:26). The most direct and important message from this timeless reminder is our commission to reach out to the unbelieving world. Evangelism must always remain the top priority on the long list of church work. Nothing can or should ever replace it. In all circumstances, the church must remain focused on spreading the complete gospel of salvation entrusted to her.
