The wisdom of God revealed through the scriptures during the Question and Answer segments of Global Communion Services with Pastor Chris has liberated many believers into greater effectiveness through knowledge (Hosea 4:6). That same wisdom was on display during the December Global Communion Service as Pastor Chris proffered answers to the arguments that had plagued some believers around the world.
One of the viewers of Pastor Chris Live Q&A posed a question about the relevance of symbolic sacraments such as water baptism and the Holy Communion to born-again Christians, citing the belief among some Christians that such sacraments are no longer necessary, because we have received Christ into our hearts, no longer requiring symbols. These claims the man of God, Pastor Chris, quickly refuted with copious scriptures proving the importance of water baptism and the Holy Communion till Jesus comes.
One of the infallible proofs provided through scripture for the relevance of the water baptism was the account in Acts 8:35-38 of the water baptism of the Ethiopian Eunuch after he received Christ through Philip, the evangelist. This and other scriptures, including 1 Corinthians 1:13-14, show the necessity for physical water baptism, even after the spiritual immersion into the body of Christ, carried out by the Holy Spirit.
In response to the inquiry on the Holy Communion, Pastor Chris read 1 Corinthians 11:26, the words of Jesus to Paul, the Apostle: "For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes." This and several other scriptures, including Acts Chapter 2, Verses 42 and 46, emphatically declare that the Holy Communion is to continue frequently till the Lord's return.
