Title: The Lord's Supper


1
The Lord's Supper
  • A Memorial Meal

2
1 Corinthians 1123-25
  • For I received from the Lord that which I also
    delivered to you that the Lord Jesus on the same
    night in which He was betrayed took bread and
    when He had given thanks, He broke it and said,
    "Take, eat this is My body which is broken for
    you do this in remembrance of Me." In the same
    manner He also took the cup after supper, saying,
    "This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This
    do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of
    Me."

Memorials
  • Man has instituted a variety of memorials.
  • In the U.S., for example, we celebrate Columbus
    Day, Mothers Day, Memorial Day, Fathers Day and
    Independence Day, to name just a few.
  • These days commemorate certain people and events
    that Americans deem important.
  • Nothing should be more important to the
    Christian, however, than the death and
    resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

4
The Lord's Memorial
  • The Lord did not just leave it to chance whether
    or not we would institute memorials to these
    all-important events.
  • He instituted the Lords Supper as a memorial to
    Himself, to enable us to keep uppermost in our
    minds what He has done in order for us to be
    restored to fellowship with God, which fellowship
    was broken by our sin.

5
The Lord's Memorial
  • Obviously, when Jesus said, concerning the bread,
  • This is My body,
  • and concerning the cup,
  • This is My blood,
  • He meant they were His body and blood
    figuratively,
  • not literally.
  • That is, the bread would symbolize His body, and
    the
  • contents of the cup would represent His blood.

6
The Lord's Memorial
  • The unleavened bread is to remind us that His
    body was untainted by sin, but put to death on
    our behalf.
  • The fruit of the vine prompts us to recall His
    innocent blood, which was poured out in His
    death.
  • And the day of partaking is to bring to our minds
    His resurrection, which was the full and final
    proof that He was (and is) who He claimed to be.

7
Romans 11-4
  • Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be
    an apostle, separated to the gospel of God which
    He promised before through His prophets in the
    Holy Scriptures, concerning His Son Jesus Christ
    our Lord, who was born of the seed of David
    according to the flesh, and declared to be the
    Son of God with power according to the Spirit of
    holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.

8
The Lord's Memorial
  • The memorial nature of the Lords Supper was
    typified in the purpose of the Passover feast,
    which Jesus and His apostles had just finished
    eating when the Lords Supper was instituted.

9
Exodus 1214
  • So this day shall be to you a memorial and you
    shall keep it as a feast to the Lord throughout
    your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by
    an everlasting ordinance.

10
Exodus 133, 9
  • Remember this day in which you went out of
    Egypt. It shall be as a sign to you on your
    hand and as a memorial between your eyes, that
    the Lords law may be in your mouth for with a
    strong hand the Lord has brought you out of
    Egypt.

11
Deuteronomy 163
  • that you may remember the day in which you came
    out of the land of Egypt all the days of your
    life.

12
A Memorial Meal
  • This feast which commemorated the slaying of the
  • paschal lamb to grant deliverance from death of
    the
  • first-born of the Israelites and consequently the
  • deliverance of Gods chosen people from Egyptian
  • Bondage, was to keep these glorious events fresh
    in the
  • minds of all Israelites in every generation, to
    make
  • them feel that they shared in that which it
  • commemorated.

13
The Memorial Meal
  • Of infinitely greater significance than the
    Passover is the Lords Supper, which commemorates
    the death of
  • the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the
    world (John 129),
  • which death grants deliverance from the bondage
    of sin and saves from eternal death.

14
The Memorial Meal
  • Indeed, the greatest event in the history of the
    world was the sacrificial offering of the
    Saviors body and the shedding of His blood on
    Calvarys cross in order to redeem man from the
    bondage and curse of sin.
  • This event is the central theme of the gospel.
  • Paul declared,
  • For I determined not to know anything among you
    except Jesus Christ and Him crucified (1 Cor.
    22).

15
The Memorial Meal
  • To the end that His disciples might have an
    abiding memorial to keep fresh in their minds His
    suffering and death for their sins,

16
The Memorial Meal
  • To the end that His disciples might have an
    abiding memorial to keep fresh in their minds His
    suffering and death for their sins, Jesus left no
    statues or personal relics of Himself (such as a
    shroud),

17
The Memorial Meal
  • To the end that His disciples might have an
    abiding memorial to keep fresh in their minds His
    suffering and death for their sins, Jesus left no
    statues or personal relics of Himself (such as a
    shroud), but only the simple meal, the Lords
    Supper, which is indeed the worlds greatest
    memorial to commemorate the worlds greatest
    event.

18
The Memorial Meal
  • The eating of the bread reminds us of the body
    which suffered untold pain and was slain for us,
    and the drinking of the fruit of the vine reminds
    us of the blood that was shed for our sins.
  • That we are apt to forget objects, events, and
    persons that are removed from sight - out of
    sight, out of mind - is most apparent in the
    experience of all.
  • It is this fact that lies behind all the
    monuments and memorials men have ever created.

19
The Memorial Meal
  • The treasured picture of a deceased mother is a
    constant reminder of the blessings and joy
    received from her unselfish and gracious deeds of
    love and devotion while she lived, and it
    perpetually serves to keep the image of her
    blessed person fresh and alive in the heart of a
    son or daughter.

20
The Memorial Meal
  • No greater calamity can befall any child of God
    than to forget the crucified Savior.

21
The Memorial Meal
  • No greater calamity can befall any child of God
    than to forget the crucified Savior.
  • One who fails to keep His death in memory will
    likely forget, also, the purging from his old
    sins made possible by that death, and will, as a
    result, fail to live in harmony with the Lords
    revealed will.

22
2 Peter 15-9
  • But also for this very reason, giving all
    diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue
    knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to
    self-control perseverance, to perseverance
    godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and
    to brotherly kindness love. For if these things
    are yours and abound, you will be neither barren
    nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus
    Christ. For he who lacks these things is
    shortsighted, even to blindness, and has
    forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.

23
The Memorial Meal
  • What, then, about the child of God who neglects
    or fails to meet with his brothers and sisters in
    Christ around the Lords Table to remember the
    Saviors death, which made possible deliverance
    from sin and citizenship in the divine kingdom?

24
The Memorial Meal
  • By such negligence he implicitly treats with
    contempt the death of Christ, virtually counting
    the blood of the covenant by which he was
    sanctified a common thing.

25
Hebrews 1028-29
  • Anyone who has rejected Moses' law dies without
    mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
    Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose,
    will he be thought worthy who has trampled the
    Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the
    covenant by which he was sanctified a common
    thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?

26
The Memorial Meal
  • By such negligence he implicitly treats with
    contempt the death of Christ, virtually counting
    the blood of the covenant by which he was
    sanctified a common thing.
  • In emphasizing the basic purpose of the Lords
    Supper as a means of recalling to the Christians
    mind the suffering and death of Christ on our
    behalf, we must not forget the durability of this
    greatest event the world has ever known.

27
The Memorial Meal
  • The pictures we have of our loved ones can be
    lost, be faded by the passing of time, or be
    destroyed by the elements.
  • The monuments men have erected in remembrance of
    their heroes or of great historical events are
    also subject to the ravages of time and the
    elements.

28
The Memorial Meal
  • But the simple memorial that the crucified,
    resurrected, everlasting Son of God erected to
    Himself - the Lords Supper - shall last as long
    as time shall be so that His memory can be kept
    fresh in the hearts and minds of faithful
    Christians in every generation.

29
1 Corinthians 1126
  • For as often as you eat this bread and drink this
    cup, you proclaim the Lord's death till He comes.

30
The Memorial Meal
  • But the simple memorial that the crucified,
    resurrected, everlasting Son of God erected to
    Himself - the Lords Supper - shall last as long
    as time shall be so that His memory can be kept
    fresh in the hearts and minds of faithful
    Christians in every generation.

31
The Memorial Meal
  • But the simple memorial that the crucified,
    resurrected, everlasting Son of God erected to
    Himself - the Lords Supper - shall last as long
    as time shall be so that His memory can be kept
    fresh in the hearts and minds of faithful
    Christians in every generation.
  • It has the same meaning for the church today that
    it had in the first century.

What would you think...
  • ...if your father, son, husband or brother died
    in a fire to save another person's life and that
    person did not even have the decency to attend
    your loved one's funeral?
