Why Do We Practice Corporate Communion?
I don’t see anywhere in the Bible where after the description of Jesus sharing bread and wine during the Passover meals that it says that communion should become a ritual… As in something that you do in church or at a gathering. I’ve often wondered why we don’t just do this at home every day. It’s like when we break bread at suppertime and have our drink why don’t we just say it and remember that Christ died for us broke his body and shed his blood for us. Does it have to be something that we do in church? When did communion and church become a thing? And how do the Scriptures support what we do?
The Lord’s Supper and Baptism are ordinances Jesus gave to His church, and it is vital that pastors/elders/leaders take the charge seriously to “do this in remembrance of Me.” The two ordinances Jesus gave to His church must be practiced in the church regularly.
