“In this accessible, biblical-theological approach to the Lord’s Supper, Waters demonstrates the Supper’s integral place in redemptive history and its consequent importance for the life of the church, inasmuch as Christ offers himself as spiritual nourishment to be received through faith. This message needs to be heard and heeded.   The Messiah personally communes with the bread and cup. And when we take of the bread, we commune with the body of the Messiah—who is the church, the spiritual body of Christ. To be biblical, you must affirm some sort of spiritual presence at the Lord’s Table. There’s something unique and holy about the Supper.

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) sacrament study Invitation to Christ makes this recommendation: “Set cup and plate on the Lord’s Table on every Lord’s Day.” The paten and chalice help us to remember the primary function of the Lord’s Table, and can serve to whet our appetite for the spiritual nourishment we receive from Christ. Dearly beloved brethren, on - I intend, by God's grace, to celebrate the Lord's Supper: unto which, in God's behalf, I bid you all that are here present; and beseech you, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, that ye will not refuse to come thereto, being so lovingly called and bidden by God himself. Ye know how grievous and unkind a thing it is.

Question: Is the Lord’s Supper more important than the other actions in the worship service? –B.C., Indiana. Thanks for the question. There are many sincere brethren who believe that the Lord’s Supper is the central element of our worship, and there are many other sincere brethren who believe it is exactly of equal importance with the other areas of worship and dedication to God that.

The Lord"s Supper in the life of the Church of Christ by Johnny Ruel Melton Download PDF EPUB FB2

--The Lords Supper is a reminder of the leading truths of the gospel: (1) Salvation, like this bread, is the gift of Gods love.

(2) We are reminded of the life of Christ --all he was and did and said. (3) We are reminded, as by the passover, of the grievous bondage of sin from which Christ redeems us. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup.

For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.” 1 Corinthians The Lord’s Supper: Remembrance of Jesus.

The Lord’s Supper is a testimony. The Lord's Supper, A Study of 1 Corinthians John Zens. Introduction. In the New Testament we should be struck by the utter simplicity that characterized life in the early churches. We are given a broad picture of church life, but many particulars - which are troublesome for us - are left untouched by the New Testament.

The Lord's Supper: Remembering and Proclaiming Christ Until He Comes. Volume 10 of NAC Studies in Bible & Theology. Nashville, TN: B&H Academic, pp. $ At only a few pages shy of four-hundred pages of written text, the book covers a significant amount of territory related to the Lord’s Supper/5(22).

The Lord’s Supper is observed on the first day of the week. Paul waited a week in Troas for the church to come together, which they did on Sunday to observe the Lord’s Supper and to give of their means. I Corinthians “On the first day of the week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that there.

Preparing for the Coming of Christ. Our participation in the Lord’s Supper is one of the most effective means of preparation for the coming of Christ. The universal remembrance of Christ, and the subjection of all nations to him, cannot be hoped for until his return, and we, by the Lord’s Supper, show forth his death till he come.

Traditionally, churches of Christ have observed the Lord's supper each Sunday - and only on that day. Now, some are suggesting there is New Testament authority for daily communion, or for the serving of the supper on days other than the Lord's day.

Unfortunately for those who so argue, the New Testament "authority" for this evolving procedure is missing. The Lord’s Supper is a solemn and vital practice in the life of a local church; a tangible way for Christ’s redeemed people to remember the greatness of our Savior and the sufficiency of his sacrificial death to fully atone for our sins past, present, and future.

Self-examination of one’s soul before partaking of the Lord’s Supper involves determining whether or not one is a Christian. We are to consider whether we are trusting in Christ alone for salvation, and we are to repent for the unbelief that remains in our hearts.

We are to repent of our sin and seek reconciliation with others wherever. The Lord’s Supper In The Reformation Era. Martin Luther insisted that Christ's body and blood are really present in the Eucharist. On the other hand, the Swiss and South German Reformers, who initiated what became the Reformed tradition, believed Christ was present only symbolically in the minds and hearts of those participating in the Eucharist.

Communion is the Lord’s supper, not ours. Literally, it “belongs to the Lord.” When we forget that, we forget to discern the sacrifice of his body which that bread represents and as a result we become spiritually weaker and sicker until God brings the judgment of the second death upon us (vs.

; cf. Rom. ; Rev. Christians observe the Lord's Supper "till He comes." Believers look forward to that day when the Lord Jesus Christ will come again. Jesus said to His disciples, "I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father's kingdom." Matthew The Lord's Supper is a time of examination.

The Eucharist (/ ˈ juː k ər ɪ s t /; also known as Holy Communion and the Lord's Supper among other names) is a Christian rite that is considered a sacrament in most churches, and as an ordinance in others. According to the New Testament, the rite was instituted by Jesus Christ during the Last Supper; giving his disciples bread and wine during a Passover meal, Jesus commanded his disciples.

Communion: The Lord's Supper is a sign of Christian love for one another and a "sacrament of our redemption by Christ's death." The AMEC believes that the bread is a partaking of the body of Jesus Christ and the cup is a partaking of the blood of Christ, by faith. In The Lord’s Supper: Answers to Common Questions, Dr.

Keith A. Mathison walks through these questions and several others to help us better understand this sacrament. Far from being an empty ritual, the Lord’s Supper is a means of grace, a source of spiritual nourishment, and true communion with Christ and His church. To receive Christ’s benefits in the Lord’s Supper is to receive Christ’s people as brothers and sisters.

In the Lord’s Supper itself we make the commitment to each other that takes us across the line between “handful of Christians” and “local church.” In the Lord’s Supper itself we come together as one body. Bible verses related to The Lords Supper from the King James Version (KJV) by Relevance - Sort By Book Order 1 Corinthians - For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.

If you have haven't died with Christ in baptism, please meditate about your soul's condition and the will of God in your life while we take the Lord's Supper. Physical and Spiritual In the Lord's Supper, we take simple, physical items - crackers and juice - and we eat and drink.

We believe The Lord's Supper, also known as communion, is a memorial of Christ's death; the elements are symbolic of His body and blood. In communion we remember what Christ has done to secure our salvation, and we proclaim that He is coming again.

(Matthew ; 1. Verse 16 – The cup is the communion of the blood of Christ, and the bread is the communion of the body of Christ. The Lord's Supper is a memorial to Jesus’ death, in which we all share with the body and blood of Jesus.

Obviously, this is not physical sharing with Jesus’ literal body and blood. The Lord’s Supper is loaded with meaning. It is an ordinance or command, instituted by Jesus to remind his disciples that forgiveness and fellowship are at the heart of the church’s life together. It has been said before that in baptism the new Christian goes public with their profession of faith.

In baptism, we are saying publicly, “I am.But what does the Lord's Supper mean today? Far from losing any of its significance and importance, of necessity, this ceremony must be an often and vital happening in the life of today's Christian church.

The death of Christ, His broken body and spilt blood, is the bedrock of the Christian faith.The Lord’s Supper. Text: I Cor. I. It is a covenant meal A. Luke - The cup is the new covenant B. A covenant that is taken with us in the kingdom - Matt C.

Covenants were often sealed with a meal shared between the two parties.
