The Last Supper
Let a man examine himself,
and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup.
1 Corinthians 11:28
The Lord’s Supper (Breaking of Bread, or Communion), there is nothing quite like this solemn, and yet joyful important act of worship.
Sadly, it is possible to participate in The Lord’s Supper without even thinking about God. It can become a ritual full of action but empty of meaning. If we let that happen, we miss out on a time of gratitude, encouragement and fellowship. And we miss the blessing that comes with a serious examination of our spiritual condition (1 Corinthians 11:28).
The Lord’s Supper, that solemn time of self-examination before God, reminds us of our responsibility to check the attitude of our heart. And it helps us to keep the slate clean. Be sure to experience the benefits of Communion.
Remembering Christ's death for us should cause us to live for Him.
1 Corinthians 11:17-34.
Lord Jesus, for Your wonderful work on the cross, and for every opportunity to remember it, I give You my praise and thank You. Amen.
