Communion is the act of remembering the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus. This symbol of eating “his body and drinking his blood” reminds us of all that Christ has done for us. Communion is important because it’s a command to remember. Jesus wants us to remember every time we taste bread and wine, and even when we sit at the tables in our own homes, that He is the one who provides all we need. He gives us the physical food that we need to survive and the spiritual nourishment we need to keep taking our next steps with Him.
