The Lord's Supper

I Corinthians 11:23-29

You see sitting before you the elements of the Lord's Supper. They are simple and very common: Bread and wine. Yet they gain their significance in the hands of Christ. They become the most important facts of the Christian faith. They are symbols of His character and His mission here on earth. The Bread represents His body and the Wine represents His shed blood. Jesus instituted the Lord's Supper for one reason: that we might remember those two very important facts of our faith. Tonight we are going to observe this very important ordinance. It will be well for us to return to the Scripture and be reminded of the significance of what we are about to do. Read: I Co. 11:2

I. Remember His Incarnation.

II. Remember His Devotion.

III. Remember His Suffering.

IV. Remember His Invitation.

V. Remember His Purpose.

The observance of the Lord's Supper is not the traditions of men. It was ordained and established by the Lord Jesus Christ. It is a very important part of our worship. However, it must never be entered into lightly, without serious self-examination. Read: v27-29.

Tonight Let's examine ourselves in the light of God's Word, and see there is something that would hinder our fellowship with God during this observance. If there is, we need to confess it before God and make it right. Tonight, we need to remember what Christ did for us; consider our lives before Kim; and realize that He is coming again.
