 Communion 

The coats of skins that God made for Adam and Eve came from sheep. Blood was shed and we know that Jesus Christ was that lamb slain from the foundation of the world. We know that without the shedding of blood is no remission of sin and that it had to be done to cover Adam and Eves disobedience to God. They paid for their sin when Cain killed Able. Sin has always had a price and even today it does not go unpunished. The good news is that Jesus paid the price for our sin. Blood is a predominant theme all through the Bible and is a subject that cannot be exhausted. When we came into this world we were innocent and yet we were born in sin and shaped in iniquity because of our first parents sin and because of our own parents sin. Baptism in the name of Jesus Christ takes care of the sins you were born into. However, as we grow up we seem to have a propensity to lie, steal, cheat, and begin to learn the behaviors all of us indulged in when we were young. That is why King David of Israel asked God not to remember the sins of his youth. He was not unlike the rest of us. His later life showed this and yet he was a man after God's own heart. How could this be? David offered to God many and varied animal sacrifices. He shed blood of animals to cover the sin of the blood he shed of men. His heart was always contrite when he knew that what he had done was wrong. He had a repentant heart. Since we all commit sin after we are baptized in Jesus Name, there is another way to apply the blood of Jesus and that is through communion. Peter told us to repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. This covers our sins up to this point in time. I have known of people who went back to fornication, drinking, smoking, etc. after they were repented and baptized in Jesus name. A correct baptism is not something that ever needs to be done again. Notice Peter said, "for the remission of sins." In Matt. 26:28 Jesus uses the phrase, "for the remission of sins" when he refers to the drinking of His blood for the purpose of remission of sins. This is how we take care of our daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly sins. All have sinned. There is none good, no not one. The only sinless person I know or have ever known is Jesus. That is why Peter called it the precious blood of Jesus - because it was pure and sinless and is needed to take away our sin. How often you take communion depends upon how much life you want in you. Whether you take wine or grape juice is between you and Jesus, but it is important that you take communion to sustain the life of Jesus Christ in your life.  (more)
