Engagement Study Notes
Communion is an opportunity for followers of Jesus to remember and celebrate what he has done for them through his death and resurrection. The communion bread and wine (or juice) represent Jesus’ broken body and shed blood. They’re reminders that we are forgiven through his sacrifice. First Corinthians 11:17–32 says that believers should approach communion thoughtfully, examining themselves before eating the bread and drinking the juice.
