Lord’s Supper This Sunday
This Sunday, during worship, we will be observing the
Lord’s Supper. Communion is a special time for our church.
Jesus on the night before He was crucified instituted the
Lord’s Supper. Our church celebrates it four times a year on
fifth Sundays. Some churches take Communion every week,
and it certainly is important enough to do it that often. Most
Baptist churches observe the Lord’s Supper once a quarter
so that it does not become routine. Paul emphasizes that
partaking of the Lord’s Supper is not to be entered into lightly.
I ask that you come spiritually prepared for this impactful time
Sunday. If you are still watching via Livestream or Facebook,
then I encourage you to pick up some juice and bread to take
it along with us.
Years ago, I pastored a church that required a Baptismal
class before being baptized. I led the classes. We baptized on
the Sunday that we observed Communion (once a month at
that church), and the complete service that day was centered
around the ordinances. During the baptismal course for
children, I always asked, “What do you like best about our
Church?” Every group of children always responded, “Baptism
and Lord’s Supper.” It should not have surprised me with their
answer. After all, Jesus instituted these two ordinances, and
they are just as powerful today as they were 2,000 years ago
when Jesus told his disciples to remember Him and identify
with Him through baptism and Lord’s Supper.
Hope to see you Sunday as we remember what Jesus did
for us! Come and enjoy the close communion we feel as we
partake of the Lord’s Supper together.
