Various Passages – Taking the Body and the Blood of Our Lord (mp3)


This morning we have had the great pleasure of witnessing 5 baptisms. Praise God! In light of this, I think that it would be a good time to think through in some more detail the meaning of the Lord’s Supper that these new members will be taking for the first time as members of Crossway Christian Church. What does the NT indicate that the Lord’s Supper means? Is it merely symbolic of Jesus’ death, or is it more than that? If more, what? While much more can be said, this morning let us meditate on a couple of features of our Lord’s Supper.

1. The Lord’s Supper is a sacrifice

2. The Lord’s Supper is a covenant

3. The Lord’s Supper is sustenance

4. The Lord’s Supper is unifying
