Summary: Communion is time of remembering
Communion is a solemn reenactment of the last supper, or the Lord’s Supper. The only qualification for us to partake in communion is for us to have an ongoing relationship with Jesus Christ.
[1Co 11:23] For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread,  and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.”  In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.”  For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
 Therefore, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord.  A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup.  For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself.
Communion reminds us of four significant truths.
- It is a remembrance of Christ suffering and death for our sin that brought our salvation
- It is the bond of fellowship with Christ and all believers as His church
- It’s a proclamation of the grace of God
- It is prophetic of Christ’s soon return
