My second essay based on the Confession of Faith from a Mennonite Perspective, entitled On Jesus, is now available. As always, I welcome your comments.
A scripture on the Lord’s supper, a chance to commemorate and remember how Jesus loved us to the end:
For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. (1 Corinthians 11:26)
From Article 12 of the Confession of Faith from a Mennonite Perspective:
We believe that the Lord’s Supper is a sign by which the church thankfully remembers the new covenant which Jesus established by his death. In this communion meal, the members of the church renew our covenant with God and with each other. As one body, we participate in the life of Jesus Christ given for the redemption of humankind. Thus we proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
