Passover, Communion and Baptism

When Jesus and his disciples took Passover together for the last time, he gave his followers new meaning to a tradition they knew well. “Do this in remembrance of me.” The Passover meal was meant to remind Israel that God is near. Communion reminds Christian believers today that God is near. Circumcision was an outward sign identifying those in covenant relationship with God. Baptist is our outward sign of an inward change. Neither makes one righteous. Our ordinances of communion and baptism are constant reminders that God is near and that he does for us what we cannot do for ourselves.
