1 Corinthians 11:23-28
Every time you partake of the Lord's Supper, you are retelling the story of the cross.
I. A word of explanation (v. 23)
Christ's broken body and shed blood is pictured in the taking of the bread and the cup.
II. A word of exaltation (vv. 24-25)
We take the supper to remember Him. We are a thankful people, full of praise and exaltation unto Him.
III. A word of expectation (v. 26)
The Lord's Supper is taken in anticipation of His promised return.
IV. A word of examination (v. 28)
We should only come to the Lord's table after we have examined our lives before Him.
This is the Lord's table. He invites us to preach a sermon every time we eat the bread or drink the cup. We are proclaiming the Lord's death until He comes.
