The Lord's Supper a Blessed Reminder of Jesus Christ

Luke 22:13-20 New King James Version (NKJV)

13 So they went and found it just as He had said to them, and they prepared the Passover.

14 When the hour had come, He sat down, and the [a]twelve apostles with Him. 15 Then He said to them, “With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; 16 for I say to you, I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”

17 Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, “Take this and divide it among yourselves; 18 for I say to you, [b]I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.”

19 And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”

20 Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.


Introduction: When Jesus Christ initiated the celebration of the Lord’s Supper on the night before He went to the Cross, He made it clear to His disciples that what they were doing was going to be in remembrance of Him. And through the years, believers all over the world have been made aware of this truth every time they celebrate this ordinance. The serve then is not a repetition of what He did on the Cross (this is not a mass), but a simple and sacred memorial of Him and of what He idd for us. Bear in mind that as you and I participate today, were are reminded of
