The Lord’s Supper

The Lord's Supper

As we gather on the first day of each week to “break bread,” we are not engaged, as many think, in some sort of sacerdotal ritualism that miraculously infuses grace or efficacy. Instead, we do so in remembrance of Him who, without ceasing to be I AM THAT I AM or HE WHO IS, came into this world and took upon Himself flesh so He could die for us. We, therefore, thankfully participate in this supper in excited anticipation of His coming again, for He has promised to personally return for us so that where He is now we will one day be. Just as He is presently in His glorified body, so we will be when He returns for us. Consequently, our remembrance and proclamation of His death until He comes again pervades our teaching, preaching, singing, praying, giving, and loving of one another. And if not, then we are not properly discerning the Lord’s body. Although such an assembled remembrance is very much a “first day of the week” event, the sacrifice He made for us has no such parameters. Indeed, it permeates all we think, say, and do twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. To God be the glory, now and forever. Amen!
