Title: The Lords Supper is not designed for the satisfaction of physical hunger and thirst, or for the nour


1
  • The Lords Supper is not designed for the
    satisfaction of physical hunger and thirst, or
    for the nourishment of the physical body.
  • It is designed to meet spiritual, rather than
    physical needs.
  • As a spiritual meal, it has many aspects, or
    facets.

The Lord's Supper
  • A Memorial Meal

The Lord's Supper
  • A Proclamation Meal

The Lord's Supper
  • A Covenant Meal

5
The Lord's Supper
  • It Is Also A Fellowship Meal

6
1 Corinthians 1016
  • The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the
    communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which
    we break, is it not the communion of the body of
    Christ?

fellowship
7
A Fellowship Meal
  • The word rendered communion in this passage is
    from the same word translated fellowship.
  • It means participation, association, intimacy.
  • When Christians eat the bread and drink the cup
    in the Lords Supper they participate in and have
    fellowship with the blessings and privileges of
    His body and His blood.

8
A Fellowship Meal
  • Of course, our fellowship or communion with
    Christ is much broader than partaking of the
    Lords Supper.

9
1 Corinthians 19
  • God is faithful, by whom you were called into the
    fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

10
1 John 11-3
  • That which was from the beginning, which we have
    heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we
    have looked upon, and our hands have handled,
    concerning the Word of life-- the life was
    manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness,
    and declare to you that eternal life which was
    with the Father and was manifested to us-- that
    which we have seen and heard we declare to you,
    that you also may have fellowship with us and
    truly our fellowship is with the Father and with
    His Son Jesus Christ.

11
A Fellowship Meal
  • Of course, our fellowship or communion with
    Christ is much broader than partaking of the
    Lords Supper.
  • Paul says that, in everything he did to serve the
    Lord, foregoing anything and everything that
    would keep him from being loyal to his divine
    Master, he had fellowship or communion with the
    sufferings of Christ.

12
Philippians 38, 10-11
  • Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the
    excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my
    Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all
    things, and count them as rubbish, that I may
    gain Christ ... that I may know Him and the power
    of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His
    sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by
    any means, I may attain to the resurrection from
    the dead.

13
A Fellowship Meal
  • The apostle John affirms that this fellowship
    includes the blessing of cleansing from sin by
    the Saviors blood, which is one way of having
    communion with the sacrifice of Christ on the
    cross.

14
1 John 17
  • But if we walk in the light as He is in the
    light, we have fellowship with one another, and
    the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us
    from all sin.

15
A Fellowship Meal
  • The apostle John affirms that this fellowship or
    communion includes the blessing of cleansing from
    sin by the Saviors blood, which is one way of
    having communion with the sacrifice of Christ on
    the cross.
  • But to enjoy this blessing, the apostle insists
    that we must not walk in the darkness but in the
    light, which means that we are to follow the
    Lords will in all things, not only participating
    in the fellowship meal but keeping all the divine
    commandments and ordinances.

16
1 John 15-6
  • This is the message which we have heard from Him
    and declare to you, that God is light and in Him
    is no darkness at all. If we say that we have
    fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie
    and do not practice the truth.

17
A Fellowship Meal
  • This does not mean, however, that the Christian
    must be perfectly sinless in order to have
    fellowship with the body and blood of Christ.
  • If walking in the light meant never sinning, the
    Christian who was walking in the light would have
    no sin and would not need cleansing by the blood.
  • But it does mean that he is putting forth a
    determined effort to do the Lords will, not
    picking and choosing which commandments he will
    obey.

18
A Fellowship Meal
  • These truths do not, in any way, minimize the
    importance of the fellowship of the body and
    blood of Christ, which Christians enjoy in the
    partaking of the Lords Supper.
  • There is no more intimate, immediate and direct
    fellowship possible for men and women to have
    with the sacrifice of Christ, than that which is
    available in the fellowship meal.

19
A Fellowship Meal
  • When partaking worthily, their minds and hearts
    are consciously centered upon the suffering,
    crucified Savior and the blessings involved in
    that loving, merciful, meritorious sacrifice.
  • Hence, it seems impossible that a child of God
    could be walking in the light, while neglecting
    the gathering of the saints around the Lords
    Table to commemorate the Lord's death.

20
A Fellowship Meal
  • Such a persons irreverence in failing to partake
    of the Lords Supper is indicative of his
    unconcern for his sins and for his need of the
    Saviors sacrifice, which the fellowship meal
    represents.
  • He has turned away from Christ, rejecting a means
    of access to the mercy and grace of God.
  • In rejecting the fellowship meal, he has rejected
    fellowship with the body and blood of Christ.

21
A Fellowship Meal
  • Jesus gave the last measure of devotion in the
    service of mankind when He tasted of death for
    every man.

22
Hebrews 21-4
  • Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to
    the things we have heard, lest we drift away. For
    if the word spoken through angels proved
    steadfast, and every transgression and
    disobedience received a just reward, how shall we
    escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which
    at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and
    was confirmed to us by those who heard Him, God
    also bearing witness both with signs and wonders,
    with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy
    Spirit, according to His own will?

23
Hebrews 25-8
  • For He has not put the world to come, of which we
    speak, in subjection to angels. But one testified
    in a certain place, saying "What is man that You
    are mindful of him, Or the son of man that You
    take care of him? You have made him a little
    lower than the angels You have crowned him with
    glory and honor, And set him over the works of
    Your hands. You have put all things in subjection
    under his feet." For in that He put all in
    subjection under him, He left nothing that is not
    put under him. But now we do not yet see all
    things put under him.

24
Hebrews 29
  • But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower
    than the angels, for the suffering of death
    crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the
    grace of God, might taste death for everyone.

25
A Fellowship Meal
  • Jesus gave the last measure of devotion in the
    service of mankind when He tasted of death for
    every man.
  • And those who truly see in the fellowship meal
    His perfectly unselfish devotion cannot keep from
    dedicating their lives to the Lord
  • by unselfishly serving their fellowmen,
  • by worshipping God,
  • and by keeping themselves unspotted from the
    world.

26
A Fellowship Meal
  • Also, the fellowship we have of the body and
    blood of Jesus Christ through the Lords Supper
    is but a foretaste of heavenly glory when our
    fellowship with Christ shall be full and
    unending.
  • The union between Christ and the Christian will
    never be dissolved in heaven, and thus the
    fellowship between them will never end.
  • Delightful is the unity and fellowship of
    believers on earth.

27
Psalm 133
  • Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
  • For brethren to dwell together in unity!
  • It is like the precious oil upon the head,
  • Running down on the beard,
  • The beard of Aaron,
  • Running down on the edge of his garments.

28
Psalm 133
  • It is like the dew of Hermon,
  • Descending upon the mountains of Zion
  • For there the Lord commanded the blessing--
  • Life forevermore.

29
A Fellowship Meal
  • But this delight will be immeasurably heightened
    in heaven, when we will need no meal to commune
    with Him.
