Sunday Morning SoundBytes – 3/3/2013

Sunday’s message in the Why Do We …? series was on Communion, taken from Matthew 26:26-30 and other scriptures. Here is a brief outline of the message:

I. What do the bread and the cup represent?
   A. The bread and the cup represent the broken body and shed blood of Christ. (Matthew 26:26-28)
     1) The broken body refers to Christ’s sufferings.
     2) The shed blood refers to Christ’s death and the new covenant.
   B. The bread and the cup reflect the unity of the church in Christ. (1 Corinthians 10:16-17)
   C. The bread and the cup point forward to Christ’s return. (Matthew 26:29; 1 Corinthians 11:26)

II. Why should you examine yourself before taking the bread and the cup? (1 Corinthians 11:27-31)
   A. You should believe in Christ.

    Wanted to ask a question about taking communion while being sinful. I’m concerned about my salvation. Is this the appropriate place to ask questions?
