Communion is a sacred time | Avalon Church


Communion is a sacred time!

The Lord’s “last supper” with His disciples offers many practical lessons. The Gospel of Luke gives great detail on what took place that evening in the upper room. I want to encourage you to read and then reread this account in Luke 22:1-23.  As you do, consider these questions:

What is the relationship between the Passover celebration and communion?

What does Jesus mean when He says to the disciples, “I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.”? (v. 14)

What about when He says, “until it is fulfilled in the Kingdom of God.”? (v.15)

Then I would ask you to give serious consideration to Judas.  What was he thinking during this sacred time? What was Jesus thinking about Judas? Is there a practical application we can take from this? (vv. 3-6 & 21-22)

I’m looking forward to a sacred and life changing time as we celebrate communion together this Sunday morning.

On another note, I’ve been praying for you this week. What has your experience been as you have sought to live consistently controlled by God’s Spirit? I’m praying you persevere in this. Why? Because this is God’s will for you. (Ephesians 5:17) And we are promised that as we persevere, character and hope are produced in us (Romans 5:4). This is God’s best for us!

Can’t wait to see you Sunday!  Love you church!

P.S. Just a quick reminder about parking this Sunday for the 10:45am service. If at all possible, please park across the street at Primrose School or next door at the Elementary School so the church parking lot is available for Fall Festival setup. Thank you so much!
