Have you ever taken part in a Communion service, also called the Lord’s Supper?
ln case you don’t know what Communion is, I’ll tell you that during the service, a prayer is said to ask for the blessing of the unleavened bread and grape juice, and then it’s given out to every member who wants to participate in it.
The bread represents Jesus’s body and the grape juice represents Jesus’s blood.
The first Communion was held by Jesus and His disciples in the upper room of a home in Jerusalem.
The Lord’s Supper is a celebration Jesus established to take the place of the Passover the Jews celebrated to remember their exodus from Egypt.
During the Passover, they remembered the children of Israel’s deliverance from slavery by killing a lamb. Do you remember? Through the Lord’s Supper, Jesus wanted His disciples to remember His death on the cross, and that His blood delivers us from having to die eternally if we accept Him as our Savior.
Jesus is happy when you accept Him as your Savior and ask Him t o forgive you for all the bad things you’ve done. He wants us t o remember He died for us to save us because He loves us so much. When you take part in the Lord’s Supper, remember you’re doing it to remember Jesus, to remember His death on the cross for you.
Do you know how to bake Communion bread?
Copy the following recipe in your Prayer Journal and with the help of an adult , mix half a cup of water with a teaspoon of salt, half a cup of olive oil, and two cups of flour. Knead well and with a rolling pin, roll out the dough until it’s very flat on a baking sheet. Mark little squares on the dough with an unsharpened knife and poke them with a fork… Bake them in the oven until the dough is crisp and you’re done!
