Mars Hill Church Teignmouth

Introduction:
Over the last few years vampire type moves have been very popular in our cinemas - from Interview with a vampire to Van Hellsing to the more recent Twilight series. The fascination with the extra ordinary has always motivated peoples imagination. Even the early church where branded as crazy and weird because of practise they did called communion, The Lords Supper and also known as the eucharist meaning thanksgiving. Christians would drink wine which was Jesus blood and eat bread which was Jesus body, and so people literally thoughts they were drinking real blood and eating real human flesh and that these Christians were some kind of cannibal or vampire. The Chinese whispers went around as they totally missed the point of what these Followers of Jesus were actually doing. So why is this practice so important and significant? What are Christians actually doing? And what does it all mean?

 

Key Verse:
For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body, which is for[ you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.
(1 Corinthians 11v23-26).


Some Thoughts:
So what is so significant about communion? Why is it important for us to share this meal together as Christians? What does the New Covenant mean for you today? How can you live in the love and oneness that this represents?

Strong Foundations - Genesis 29-31 - What kind of Christian?

Being a Christian isn’t always easy… If we truly want to live for Christ - it costs, we need perseverance, we need to be willing to let go of our life, and as Jesus said - we need to loose our life, if we want to truly find his. I have been asking myself - What Kind of Christians is the church producing today? Are we anything like the picture God had in mind? We want to portray the true gospel, and see real authentic Christians being disciples and looking to make other disciples, who are willing to come and be a living sacrifice and whose delight is Jesus....

Strong Foundations - Genesis 28 - Unseen God

Have you ever gone though life wondering where God is? It might not be that is was particularly a bad time of life, but you just couldn’t really see what God was doing?
