The LORD's Supper


The LORD'S Supper
1 Corinthians 11:23-33
We need to understand the Lord's Supper is just that, the Lord's Supper. We often think of it as just a formality that the church does on certain occasions. The church observes the Lord's Supper because Jesus gave it to his disciples and the church that came into being a short while later. The emphasis is on what Jesus did and why he gave it to us. When we understand that better it will be much more significant.
"This is my body" v. 23. Jesus begins by saying the bread represented his body. Think for a moment. This was the only way the disciples knew Jesus. They had spent three years following him and seeing his body. They had seen him perform miracles and heard him teach. They had seen him love people and care for their personal problems. They had seen him ridiculed and knew some people hated him. Yet there was one thing they had never seen. They never saw him do any wrong. He had lived a perfect life. How could he do that? He was God in the flesh. In his thirty-three years he was the physical embodiment of God. So when we eat the bread we are saying I want to be like God/Jesus.
This is my blood v. 25. After Jesus made sure the disciples understood about of body, then he tells them about his blood. This is the part they had trouble understanding. He had warned them of his death several times. They could not understand why nor why he would die. Here he plainly lays out for them the importance of his death. Blood is drastic. Blood gets attention. Here he explains this is necessary to open the New Covenant that God was giving to all people. The old Covenant was in the law, dependent upon sacrificing animals and making promises to follow the Law. This New Covenant was in Jesus' blood. He was the ultimate sacrifice for all sin. He gave the cup and said do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me. He instructed them/us to remember every time we eat the bread or drink the cup to remember the sacrifice he made for us.
The New Covenant completely changes how we can know God. The Old Covenant was based upon what people could do to know God. The New Covenant is based upon God's grace and love. We must accept his love as shown in the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. It is necessary for us to love God in return for his love to us. That is why it is called a relationship. We are responsible for ourselves to choose to love Jesus and live to prove our love.
1 Corinthians 11:23-33
23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me." 25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me." 26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.
27 Therefore, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. 28 A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup. 29 For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself. 30 That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep. 31 But if we judged ourselves, we would not come under judgment. 32 When we are judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be condemned with the world.
33 So then, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for each other. 34 If anyone is hungry, he should eat at home, so that when you meet together it may not result in judgment.
And when I come I will give further directions.
In verses 26-33 the Bible warns us about taking part in the Lord's Supper. We are to examine (v. 28)ourselves to see that we are in the right frame of mind to take part. In verses 29-30 he strictly warns of circumstances that may happen if we disobey or ignore the consequences. This Bible shows the importance of the Lord's Supper and its meaning. 
Today we need to take part in this Lord's Supper in a manner that will show we love Jesus Christ and agree to abandon ourselves and follow his will for our lives.
Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus? If not ask him to forgive your sins and come into your heart and make you a Christian.


Your idea is outstanding the issue is one thing that not enough persons are speaking intelligently about. I am very completely satisfied that.
