After the fall of mankind, the promise was given by God that there would be one who would deliver us.  The hope of the Messiah, the Redeemer.

Isaiah 53 tells us what the Messiah would have to endure to save us from our sin. He came to die as a substitute for the world.

In Matthew we learn that his death was in agony.  From the cross he cried out in extreme anguish “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me,” as he took the sin of the world upon himself.  He then said it is finished, the debt of our sin was paid in full.

Jesus died on display, in front of the entire world.  He bore our sins, he shed his blood and God was pleased with him.  Communion helps us to honor what Christ did for us on the cross.
