The holy supper of the Lord Jesus Christ

The Bible tells us about the holy supper and that it was instituted by Jesus Christ so that we can remember Him with this act. This custom is in force, some churches practice it regularly, others do it rarely and a few never do it. The point is that there are several passages that tell us about this great celebration, since it is a way of remembering the sacrifice of our beloved Lord on the cross of Calvary.

Christ said:

26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.”

27 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you.

28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

29 I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”

Matthew 26:26-29

This supper of Christ with His disciples was a symbol that He was going to give His life for us, shedding His blood and delivering His body to the death of crucifixion. Today there are those who misinterpret this teaching of Christ, but the only certain thing here is that the holy supper is a moment to remember that moment of our Master.

Christ shed His blood for us, He suffered the worst of all pain for love of us and our duty is to speak of His wonders.

The apostle Paul also spoke about the holy supper saying:

26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

1 Corinthians 11:26

Every time we celebrate the Lord’s Supper we are announcing His death on the cross, His great atonement for our sins, which has redeemed us from hell and at the same time we announce to this lost world that our Lord is coming soon.

    “This do in remembrance of me”
    • Said our Lord Jesus when he met with his apostles to have the Holy Supper.

    This is something that we were instructed for the Lord and it is unbelievable that some followers of Jesus Christ do not celebrate the Holy Supper. They need not remind He was crucified for them?
    Another thing is if when we are met to celebrate the death of the Lord Jesus we are in conflict with our brother or we have commit a sin which we are not regretted of it.
    The Lord Jesus Christ teach us that we may be in peace with our brother before going to make an offering at the altar.
    Furthermore it is a holy thing to celebrate the Holy Supper because if we do not make it, we forfeit both to think about the meaning of the Cross and the fellowship with our loved Lord Jesus, whose name be blessed for ever. Amen
