of the Month
The apostle Paul writes in I Corinthians 11: 23-29, “ For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
We invite all who are members of the body of Christ to share in the fellowship of communion. With the cross before Him, betrayal sitting at His feet, and the weight of the sins of humanity about to be placed on His shoulders, Jesus gave thanks. The bread, His body was broken; the cup, the new testament in His blood was offered in remembrance. Not only in remembrance of His death, but the fact we presently serve a living Christ, and celebrate His future return.
It is more than an ordinance, tradition, or symbol. Just as the eyes of the two Emmaus disciples were opened when Jesus broke the bread, and “They knew Him” , so to as we break bread together may “our hearts burn within us” that He is present in our midst.
Do we sin? Yes! Do we struggle? Yes! What better time to remember, and get right than at the communion table.
“THIS DO IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME”
ORDINANCE OF BAPTISM
In Matthew 28:19, the Lord Himself commanded that people be baptized. The early church never conceived of a believer remaining unbaptized. The New Testament ordinance symbolized our identification with the death burial and resurrection of our Lord. (Romans 6:3-5) Therefore at NHCC we give great significance to the importance of the ordinance of Baptism in the life of the believer.
