“In Remembrance of Me” (Sept.)

We will be observing the Lord’s Supper on Sunday 09/30. This is always a great opportunity to take time to reflect on the Lord Jesus’ sacrifice as we await His return in glory. Below are a few scriptures from both the Old and New Testaments you can use to read and pray over to prepare your hearts. The sermon for the Lord’s Supper will be from Colossians 2:13-15. The passage speaks of Jesus’ death on the cross as having canceled the record of debt against us. All of our sin, Paul states, was nailed to the cross on Calvary.    

Old Testament Scriptures

Exodus 12 – The Israelites sacrificed a lamb and placed the blood on their door so that the angel of death would pass by their doors. Jesus Christ would be the ultimate sacrificial lamb, and this time God would provide the lamb.  

Isaiah 53:5 – That by his (e.g. Jesus/Messiah) wounds we are healed. This is the passage that Peter cites in 1 Peter 2:24.  

New Testament Scriptures Mark 14:12-25 – Jesus and his disciples observe the Passover meal and the institution of the Lord’s Supper occurs.  

1 Corinthians 11:23-34 – Provides the basic themes, instructions, and warnings concerning the Lord’s Supper.  
1 Peter 2:22-25 – That we might die to sin and then live to righteousness.   May the Lord bless you as you prepare your hearts to observe the Lord’s Supper.
