We Believe in the Lord’s Supper
The depth of meaning that is to be found in the Lord’s Supper is beyond the scope of one simple sermon. It is, in fact, beyond the ability of an entire series of sermons. The reason is that bread and cup are not just elements to be dissected and thought through intellectually. Bible messages, helpful as they are, fail to truly uncover the marvelous mysteries of the Communion. Words themselves are inadequate (and thus this blogger is struggling!).
Two comments made to me after the service today may clarify my meaning. The first was made by a woman who has been a faithful servant of Jesus longer than I have been alive. She simply said, “Today I truly worshipped.” The second was made by a gentleman of similar age. He said that during one song he had to stop singing. What he meant by that, I believe, was that he became so in tune with the “message” of the Lord’s Supper that his emotions rendered him unable to sing. When we reflect on the Lord’s Supper as Memorial, Eucharist, Communion, and Anticipation it can easily become a rather overwhelming experience of the goodness of God. Hallelujah! Come, Lord Jesus!
