God has forgiven all of us of so many sins. As a Christian when I fully understand the full weight of what that means, I can no longer refuse to forgive other people no matter what they did. Forgiveness does not mean trust, you don’t have to trust those that have sinned against you. It does however that you let the emotions go and should be able to act civilly around those that have wronged us. Communion is our monthly reminder that God sacrificed his Son on the Cross for our sins. It is a chance to examine our hearts and make sure that aren’t holding forgiveness in our heart and to ask God to continue to be patient with us as we continue to mature as a Christian.

I verify before God and before the witness (Discipleship Mentor) that I have listened to the sermons, read the Bible verses, answered the questions, and completed the tasks as assigned. I am commited to living a life of forgiveness and I have cleansed my heart of all grudges. I have learned about covenants, the Seder Passover Meal, and Communion. I will take what I have learned and hold it close to my heart as I partake in all future Communions.
