Communion is one of the extraordinary practices of the church because it is one of the two ordinances instituted by the Lord Jesus Himself. While sharing the Passover meal with His disciples, the Lord set the bread and the wine apart as means of grace, signifying God’s blessing and certifying His favor toward us. The Lord’s Supper is a meal, Alistair Begg explains, that draws us to focus on the past, present, and future of our salvation and moves us to thanksgiving.
17But in the following instructions I do not commend you, because when you come together it is not for the better but for the worse.
