Faith Walk: The Lord's Table

Posted

Jesus guarded the Table with sobering, searching words.

Paul:

23 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, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body, which is for[f] you. Do this in remembrance of me.”[g] 25 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.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.

27 Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. 28 Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. 30 That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died.[h]

When the Lord served His disciples in Upper Room

o(Judas)

1.The Lord's Table is a time of individual introspection

Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup.

(1 Cor. 11:28

2.Repentance and confession

25 And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. Mark 11:25

3.For the sake of church unity

10 I appeal to you, brothers,[a] by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. 1 Cor. 1:10

1 Cor.12:25) 26 If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together. 27 Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.

4.And ALL to the glory of God alone

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do ALL to the glory of God. 1 Cor. 10:31

Partaking of the Table should not be done lightly.
