As I was thinking about Alicia’s upcoming trip and the water project I was drawn to two ties when Jesus talked about a Living Water.
In talking with a woman at a well who came to draw water, Jesus said,
John 4:13–14 NIV
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
And as Jesus was coming near to the time of his crucifixion he stood up in the temple and in a loud voice said.
John 7:37–38 NIV
On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
John 7:37–38 NIV
On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
John 7:
In communion which is what we celebrate every month we are reminded of the reality that in through Christ we have access to this living water. During his last meal with his disciples, before he would be arrested and killed he set a pattern for us to follow.
Luke 22:19 NIV
And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”
Luke 22:20 NIV
In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.
So communion is a time where we remember the price Christ paid so that we can like the woman at the well, “give me this water so I won’t get thirsty.” It is us coming together to remember what Christ accomplished for us in his death and resurrection. Eternal Life. It is a recognition that we cannot save ourselves in any way, but in humility we come before Jesus and say, but you can Jesus, thank-you for saving me.
These are symbols of what Chirst accomplished on our behalf.
So as we take the bread and the cup, if your hearts cry is to have Jesus save you, to remember what he did. Then take the bread and the cup and celebrate what Christ has done.
We’ll pass out the bread and then take it together and then we’ll do the same with the cup.
1st service
Bread: David

2nd Service
Bread:
John 6:48–51 GW
“I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the desert and died. This is the bread that comes from heaven so that whoever eats it won’t die. I am the living bread that came from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. The bread I will give to bring life to the world is my flesh.”
Cup:
Cup:
John 6:53–55 NIV
Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.
Isaiah 53:5 NIV
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
Let’s take the bread together
Cup:
John 6:53–55 GW
Jesus told them, “I can guarantee this truth: If you don’t eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you don’t have the source of life in you. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life, and I will bring them back to life on the last day. My flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink.
Isia
2 Corinthians 5:21 GW
God had Christ, who was sinless, take our sin so that we might receive God’s approval through him.
1 John 1:7 GW
But if we live in the light in the same way that God is in the light, we have a relationship with each other. And the blood of his Son Jesus cleanses us from every sin.
Lets drink in remembrance and celebration of what Christ has done.
