Communion: A Celebration of Freedom
July 7, 2019 Series: Stand-Alone Message
Passage: Exodus 12, 1 Corinthians 11:23–11:34
Newer does not equal truer, and many of us suffer from what C.S. Lewis called “chronological snobbery.” We think that our generation is the one that “gets it” and we too quickly dismiss tradition as outdated. God is eternal, appreciates all aspects of time, and has prescribed certain traditions to mark out His people and form us by the practice of them. Communion is one of those practices. Communion connects us to the past while picturing and anticipating our future. In this message, Pastor Ross traces a bit of its history, inviting us to observe it more meaningfully.
