Graduation Sunday – 2018


1928 Newark New Jersey Lightweight Campion – Rev. Gary Hilton – 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
 
For most of us, we have objects in our possession that hold sentimental value to them, reminding us of loved ones past or those that live at great distances. For those that our hearts long for, we hold on to objects that have been passed down or given as gifts, and we feel as though they are still near us. Jesus gives us a similar gift in communion, for every time we look upon the elements we are reminded of His love and sacrifice made; every time we partake of the elements we are reminded of His covenant with us. Just like those objects that help us feel like those whom we long for are near, communion helps us feel the nearness of God, that He is with us wherever we go.
