From the very first time the very first church met, they met to partake of the Lord’s Supper or communion. This message will help us understand why we come together weekly and practice communion at what’s called “The Lord’s Table.” The very events of the night that Jesus instituted the first communion tell us why this experience is so important. Jesus invites us to his table and reminds us that we are not to leave the table the same way we came. We are not to take with us what we brought to the table, but we are to leave remembering how much we are loved, that we are forgiven and that we are in a covenant relationship with God through Jesus. You see, it’s not what you bring to the table, it’s what you leave the table with.
