The Lord's Supper

A Table For The Broken

BY RJ GRUNEWALD

Throughout Jesus’ ministry, he invited a rag-tag group of sinners to have a seat at the table. The table was so important that while Mark described, “The Son of Man came to seek and save the lost,” Luke suggested, “The Son of Man has come eating and drinking.”

The Old Testament Roots of The Lord's Supper: Part 2

BY DONAVON RILEY

Blood is the thing. In the Scriptures, sin must be covered or "atoned for" as it's called, by blood. You see, God hates sin. But God also wants to enjoy a faithful, loving, and kind relation with his people whom he loves. The trouble is, his people prefer to turn to things that are not God rather than God.

BY DONAVON RILEY

When the apostle Paul writes to the Corinthian church, "The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ?", he's not imagining some new way of worship. He's drawing a direct line from Israel's history to the present tense.

The Lord's Table Is Not A Potluck

Chocolate Bunnies, Bouncy Houses, Bread And Wine

BY SCOTT DAVIS

Let’s be honest, Easter Sunday is a day when many people who are not usually regular church goers come to church. Also, people who’ve become dissatisfied with their church sometimes do a little “church shopping” on this particular Sunday. As a result, us church folks really try to put on our game face and put our best foot forward.

God’s Word in Our Mouths

BY KYLE G JONES

What makes a meal more than food? We all have important meals in our lives; birthday meals; anniversary meals; traditional holiday meals. But, what makes sharing a meal with someone (or someones) significant? The type of food? How it’s eaten? Where it’s eaten?

The Meal In A Manger

BY DANIEL EMERY PRICE

At one point I was asked why we receive the Lord’s Supper during our Christmas services. This dear person felt it was a little strange for a service celebrating the birth of Jesus to transition into receiving this baby’s body and blood.

I Still Need the Sacraments

BY JAY SAWRIE

Growing up, I dreaded the first Sunday of each quarter. Every time during the evening service, we would have Lord’s Supper after the sermon. It was clockwork, without fail. I dreaded these services because they seemed to always have the same emphasis...

A Cup of Kindness for a Cup of Death

BY DANIEL EMERY PRICE

I have been preaching through the Gospel of John for a number of months. One thing that makes John different than the other three Gospels is the absence of the Lord’s Supper.
