Cherish the sacred fellowships our Lord gives us in the Lord's Supper - with him and with each other!
Jesus heals and forgives us through the Lord's Supper - a very powerful meal. This great blessing can be abused to great harm for the individual. We explore how we are to properly enjoy this meal and give it the respect it deserves.
How often do we try to "text and drive" spiritually? We think we can be "double-minded" by hanging on to the Lord and hanging on to our sins. Never turns out well! We talk about being single-minded in our devotion to the God who gave his life for us!
In this meal made sacred by his promise, we proclaim the death of our Lord.
My sins aren't that bad! This may be one of the most serious challenges to our faith. Everything and everyone is telling us we're OK, we're not that bad, have faith in yourself, etc. The problem is, if we minimize our guilt, we minimize our Savior. The greater we appreciate how messed up we are, the more we treasure Jesus' love for us messed up people.
Jesus gave us a memento we all hold in common and dear in our hearts - his Supper. What does this meal remind us of as we follow his command - Do this in remembrance of me?
