Baptism is the first outward sign of obedience toward Christ. The Lord's Supper is the sign of our continuous commitment toward our Lord Jesus Christ. And we are to be obedient until His glorious return. When we participate in communion we look for the spiritual nourishment this ordnance brings to our soul. Communion affirms our unity as Christ's Church.
What is what we do when we trust? We place everything in the hands of someone else. All of our fears, wants and needs, failures and victories. And God is demanding from us to give it all to Him and trust Him to make all decisions for us. This will stretch us to do things we could never imagine. That is why we HAVE to hand Him the key to the lock of our heart and let Him reign in our lives, as only this will set us free!
Who do you say that Jesus is? A good teacher? A Prophet? Or do you say He is The Christ of God? Many in the world follow false teachers who proclaim to be the Christ. Many in churches around the world deny Jesus as The Christ, because they deny part of the story. We know He is The Christ of God because He was born of a virgin, He lived a sinless life, He died on the cross as payment for our sins AND He was raised on the third day, so we can have eternal life.
The church today has a tremendous amount of head knowledge, but it rarely puts it into practice. The (corporate) church in America rarely moves out of its comfort zone and into the world, the neighborhoods, to proclaim His message. To fulfill the Great Commission.
