“The Gravity” of the Table
- read 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
What is “the gravity” of the table? Why is it so important not to handle the elements lightly and partake “in an unworthy manner”?
- participating in the Lord's Supper
will not leave us unaffected
1 Cor. 11:23-26 (ESV), For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, "This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me." In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me." For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.

through his death
How does your participation serve to strengthen and encourage others?
The Lord's Supper
What is the Lord’s Supper?
Christ commanded all Christians to eat bread and to drink from the cup in thankful remembrance of him and his death. The Lord’s Supper is a celebration of the presence of God in our midst; bringing us into communion with God and with one another; feeding and nourishing our souls. It also anticipates the day when we will eat and drink with Christ in his Father’s kingdom.
No, Christ died once for all. The Lord’s Supper is a covenant meal celebrating Christ’s atoning work; as it is also a means of strengthening our faith as we look to him, and a foretaste of the future feast. But those who take part with unrepentant hearts eat and drink judgment on themselves.
Does the Lord’s Supper add anything to Christ’s atoning work?
The Practice of the Lord's Supper
How does your church practice the Lord's Supper?
Can the Lord's Supper be shared at a youth retreat, at a family dinner, or for the bride and groom at a wedding?
