The Lord’s Supper

We will be observing the Lord’s Supper this Sunday (11/29).  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 to prepare your hearts. 

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 53:10 – Jesus’ death would fulfill the Father’s will.  Through this, many would be counted righteous (53:11).

New Testament Scriptures

Luke 22:14-23 – Jesus and his disciples observe the Passover meal and the institution of the Lord’s Supper occurs.

Colossians 2:13-15 – Jesus’ death on the cross canceled the record of debt against us.

1 Corinthians 11:23-34 – Provides the basic themes, instructions, and warnings concerning the Lord’s Supper.

May the Lord bless you as you prepare your hearts to observe the Lord’s Supper.
