How To Write A Communion Sermonette

Writing a Communion Sermonette is not an easy task. To put together a five minute communion sermonette with substance and flow requires considerable thought. But most of all it requires structure.

You will need to develop a main preaching point and subsequent sub-points that explain and expand the main preaching point.

In the communion sermonette below, the main preaching point is: Remembering God's Forgiveness and the sub-points are: 1) Jesus taught forgiveness, 2) Jesus brought forgiveness, and 3) Jesus practised forgiveness.

Remembering God's Forgiveness

When we look at the death of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary, we see a forgiving Savior. Even in light of all that took place, Jesus displayed a forgiving disposition. “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do…” (Matthew 23:34).

You know, Jesus not only taught forgiveness (Matt. 18:21-25), He not only brought forgiveness (Matt. 26:28), but He also practiced forgiveness.

Think for a moment. Jesus was not handing out forgiveness because He had a good day at the office or He was feeling on top of the world. No! That was not the situation at all. In fact, it was the complete opposite. First, He was falsely accused; second, He was scourged; third, He was spat upon; and fourth, He was nailed to the cross. No, it was no ordinary day at the office for Jesus. And yet, Jesus forgave them. “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do…” (Matt. 23:34).

In this way, Jesus Christ sets an example of forgiveness for all to follow.

The Bible says, “Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ also forgave you” (Ephesians 4:31-32).

As we come around the Lord’s Table this morning. Let us remember the forgiveness that Jesus brought and let us also practice the forgiveness that Jesus taught.
