RCCG HOUSE FELLOWSHIP LEADER’S MANUAL 12TH JUNE 2022 – THE SIGNIFICANCE OF HOLY COMMUNION 

RCCG House Fellowship Leader Manual 12 June 2022, Lesson 41  – The Significance Of Holy Communion

RCCG HOUSE FELLOWSHIP

 

OPENING PRAYER: Father, Please help me to know and understand the importance of the Holy communion.

PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: The leader should ask members what they understood from the last topic.

MEMORY VERSE: “Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. ” – John 6:53

BIBLE TEXT: Matthew 26:26-28 (KJV)

26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.

27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;

28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: Holy Communion is a spiritual meal that was initiated by God, in the Old Testaments a Feast of Passover, through Moses, Exodus 12:1-6. The coming of Jesus Christ, in the New Testament, also brought with Himself grace. And, one of the attributes of this grace is that the killing of unblemished lamb, for the Feast of Passover, was replaced with the flesh (Bread) and blood (Wine) of Jesus Christ. As we continue to dig deep into this important topic, we pray that Holy Spirit will help us to do justice to it adequately.

LESSON OUTLINES:

PURPOSES OF HOLY COMMUNION:

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF HOLY COMMUNION INCLUDES:

  1. DIVINE STRENGTH: The supply of the needed spiritual energy and its renewal can be got by taking Holy Communion. Matthew 26:18-24, 26-28.
  2. DIVINE RESTORATION: All the Israelites had labour for 430 years were divinely rewarded after the Feast of Passover. Exodus 12:36
  3. DIVINE DELIVERANCE: The Israelites were spared the agony of losing their first born when the angel of destruction passed through Egypt. Exodus 12:1-13
  4. DIVINE HEALING: Holy Communion acts as catalyst that will facilitate manifestation of wonders of God. The Israelites were in the wilderness for 40 years and there was no single reported case of sickness. Exodus 15:26, Isaiah 53:5
  5. DIVINE FULFILMENT: Jesus knew what He came for but when His mission was unfolding, He became nervous. He needed that extra energy. Holy Communion provided easy landing for both. Without God supplying the strength, fulfilling ones callings will be an impossible task. Matthew 26:39.

HOW THEN DO I TAKE IT AND MAXIMISE IT’S BLESSINGS?

  1. Obey all the rules and regulations guiding Holy Communion. Isaiah 1:19.
  2. Do not take it unworthy. 1 Corinthians 11:26-30.
  3. Take it regularly in remembrance of the death of Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:24-25.
  4. Always take it in evening. Matthew 26:20.
  5. When you eat the Communion, believe that you will never lack and thirst again. John 6:32-35.
  6. It must be well prepared for. Exodus 12:9-11
  7. No underage person must be allowed to take it.
  8. You are not expected to harbour any grudge against anybody.
  9. It is meant for Believers who have been baptized by water immersion.


ACTIVITY: Class mention personal testimonies relating to the Holy Communion.

SUMMARY: No man who approach or take the Holy Communion in godliness ever remain the same for good, vice versa.

CONCLUSION: The significance of Holy Communion cannot be over emphasised. All Christians involved in this Heavenly race must come to term with the reality that it is neither by power nor by might but by the special grace of God which is regularly made available through Holy Communion.
