I. When They Came Together in One Place

In the early church, believers would gather together in one place to partake in the Lord's Supper. This act of unity symbolizes the oneness of the body of Christ. It is a reminder that we are all partakers of the same salvation and share in the blessings of being part of God's family. As we come together to celebrate the Lord's Supper, let us do so with a heart of unity, recognizing our shared faith and purpose as followers of Christ.

How have we met?

  •      • We are happy when we say: come on, let's assemble? Ps. 122:1.
  •      • Our adoration is in spirit and truth/ Jno. 4:23,24.
  •      • Are we firm in our adoration? Heb. 10:25; Athos 2:42; 1 Cor. 15:58.

True worship

Acts 20:7  Now on the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul, ready to depart the next day, spoke to them and continued his message until midnight.

II. To Remember the Lord Until He Comes

The Lord's Supper serves as a powerful act of remembrance. We partake in this sacred meal to remember the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ on the cross and His victory over sin and death. As we participate in the elements of bread and the fruit of the vine, we are reminded of Christ's body broken for us and His blood shed for the forgiveness of our sins. This act of remembrance is not merely a historical event but a present reality that strengthens our faith and nourishes our souls.

  • He is the Savior of the body, the church (Ephesians 5:23);
  • He purchased the church with His own blood (Athos 20:28).
  • He is glorified in the church (Ephesians 3:21).

III. It Involved Eating Bread and Drinking the Fruit of the Vine

The Lord's Supper involves the symbolic eating of bread and drinking from the cup, representing the body and blood of Christ. Just as the physical act of eating and drinking sustains our bodies, partaking in the Lord's Supper nourishes our spirits. The bread represents Christ's body, which was broken for us, and the cup represents His blood, shed for the forgiveness of our sins. As we consume these elements, we participate in the intimate communion with our Savior and experience His grace and presence in a profound way.

John 6:53-55  Then Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.  (54)  Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.  (55)  For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.

IV. Not Eating a Common Meal

In the context of the Corinthian church, there was a misunderstanding regarding the Lord's Supper. Some were treating it as a common meal, disregarding the sacred nature of this ordinance. Paul addresses this in 1 Corinthians 11:34, reminding the believers to approach the Lord's Supper with reverence and respect. It is a time of reflection, repentance, and renewal, and should not be treated lightly or as an ordinary gathering for food. Let us remember the solemnity of the Lord's Supper and approach it with a heart of humility and gratitude.

  • We must follow the rules (2 Timothy 2:5).
  • We must be devoutly prepared (Hebreus 12:1). (Ephesians 6:10-18).
  • We demos ouvir o Senhor (Luke 6:46).
  • We must break through confusion (Philippians 2:13). (Tiago 1:21).
  • We will celebrate victory (Psalms 126:5).
