As a kid, can I take communion/Lord’s Supper?
Here's the answer:
Yes, as long as you have accepted Jesus as your Savior by believing that He died for you, was buried, and rose again. If Jesus is your Savior, talk to a grown-up about participating in communion.
Communion, also called the Lord’s Supper is a special event where we remember Jesus’ death for our sins, His resurrection, and the future glorious event of His Second Coming. Communion was started by Jesus during the Last Supper that He shared with His disciples in the upper room (Luke 22:7-21). Before we eat the bread or drink of the cup during communion, we must take a truthful look at ourselves and examine our actions (1 Corinthians 11:27-29). This means that we should not simply eat the bread and drink the juice just for the matter of doing it. Instead, we should eat the bread and drink the juice in remembrance of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
It is important to know that communion does not save a person or earn salvation. Only by accepting Jesus as our Savior and Lord can we be saved. Communion is a time to think and remember that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again.
Participating in communion is a big step in your walk with Jesus. If you have accepted Jesus as your Savior by believing that He died for your sins, was buried, and rose again, then talk to your parents or pastor to make sure that they feel you are ready to participate.
"Then Jesus took bread. He gave thanks and broke it. He handed it to them and said, 'This is my body. It is given for you. Every time you eat it, do this in memory of me.' In the same way, after the supper he took the cup. He said, 'This cup is the new covenant in my blood. It is poured out for you'" (Luke 22:19-20).
"You eat the bread and drink the cup. When you do this, you are announcing the Lord’s death until he comes again" (1 Corinthians 11:26).
"Eat the bread or drink the cup of the Lord in the right way. Don’t do it in a way that isn’t worthy of him. If you do, you will be guilty. You’ll be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord" (1 Corinthians 11:27).
