The Lord’s Supper

19 Apr
The Lord’s Supper…

The “Lord’s Supper” was a “Passover Seder”, the same meal the Jewish people partake of every year at Passover. However, the Passover is not just a meal, it’s a service. The one who leads it is the one who serves the matzah and all the other required foods. It’s not a buffet— you let the leader serve you.

Thus, the Lord’s Supper is not about serving yourself, it’s about being served. When you sit at the Lord’s Table, He’s the one who serves you the bread of life. Jesus is love, and He wants you to learn of love as well. Too often, even as believers, we live to serve ourselves.

But in the Lord’s Supper, God is saying in effect, “I’ll take care of your needs. I’ll give you the bread of life and the new wine of joy. Sit at My table and let Me minister to you.” So, first receive and then you can live your life serving— not yourself, but others.

Sit at the Lord’s Table and let Him minister to you. Then in His love, serve another, because this life is not a buffet— it’s the Lord’s Supper.

Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. Matthew 20:28

Spend time today at the Lord’s Table. Let Him serve you so that you can serve others.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
