What a great church! It’s inspiring to weekly gather and worship the Lord. This past Sunday, we looked at being devoted in fellowship. Blake did a phenomenal job of opening up the scriptures and instructing us. He taught us to be openhanded and view everything we have in light of God’s ownership. By doing so, we become collaborators in God’s kingdom agenda to carry out His design for the world. When we live out this principle, God uses us to add to His church daily.
This week we will focus on being devoted in communion. Communion draws us together in a beautiful way. We are focused on this ancient practice because it centers on Jesus. As we gather around elements that represent Jesus’ body and blood, it gives us deep inspiration to contemplate the life and death of Jesus. It’s imperative that we examine ourselves as we do this each Sunday. Scripture gives us this challenge. “So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord.” (1 Cor. 11: 27, 28) That is why we should examine ourselves before eating the bread and drinking the cup. Jesus asks us to remember Him in this way.
Communion is such a vibrant and integral part of our worship. We are devoted to it and place it centrally in our worship service. May we never lose sight of this vital practice. May we commit ourselves to it each time we gather in the name of Christ.
CAMP 23: It’s been exciting seeing all the students and sponsors from Forum at Camp 23 at High Hill Christian Assembly. It’s a blessing seeing Tyler Morris leading worship for these stellar kids. We’ve got over 80 kids attending camp this summer which goes to show the solid work Rochelle and Jessie are doing in our children’s ministry. (If you don’t have access to ForHim Children’s Ministry page, simply add it to your Facebook account.)
Come join in the fellowship and share in communion with us this Sunday,
