Introduction Believers dare not come to the table except with a repentant heart. “Whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner,” as Paul puts it, “drinks judgment to himself.” That should be a sobering warning, especially when the apostle adds that because of this offense…

Sometimes in order to return to the first love of our heart, Jesus; we must remove some things from our heart, idols.
Partaking of the Lord’s Table 1 Corinthians 11:17-34 Intro : Today we commemorate a Christian institution that is 2,000 years old. In our observance of the Lord’s Supper, we participate in a form of worship that is as old as Christianity itself. In fact, the Lord’s Supper observance was inaugurated by…

The Corinthian believers had become insensitive to one another and to the truth regarding their salvation that led to abuse of the Lord's Table. Paul corrects their thinking and behavior through instruction regarding the Lord's table and by exhorting them to examine their hearts carefully.
Within the realm of Christendom the Lord’s Supper has been seen as one of the most intimate ways to worship our Lord. This practice of observing the Lord’s Supper started within the early church it has been known by several names throughout early Christendom and is recognized as a “sacrament.” But before…
"Come To The Lord's Table"
A little boy wanted to help himself when the wine and wafers of Communion were passed out. His mother leaned over and told him that he was not old enough to take Communion. Later, when the collection plate came by, his mother again leaned over and tried to coax a nickel out of the boy’s clenched fist.…
The last and the first (Last Supper picture inserted here) (Illustration: Christ on the Cross, beaten, unrecognizable, stripped, crowned, spat on, cursed at, believed to be a curse) All that before He shed his blood, gave up His Spirit, died, was buried, rose again for our forgiveness of sins. All before…
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to…

Scripture tells us that Jesus, on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when He had given thanks, He broke it. This was expected, but what He said after is what they were not expecting. In order to appreciate the unexpected, we need to know what the disciples expected and what Jesus in the end represented. There are two expectations that the disciples had, and one new truth that would change the course of humanity forever.

This week, we grieve another senseless national tragedy, as a domestic terrorist opened fire on 22,000 concertgoers in Las Vegas. In the light of such unpredictable violence, it's easy to retreat further into our shells, to trust nobody. We don't want to be vulnerable, to be hurt. Over time, it’s easy to get jaded or even cynical. But true depth in relationships – true intimacy – requires us to be vulnerable.

Yes I know, for some that goes against your Baptist grain, but hey we haven’t had communion yet so you’re…

Introduction Did you know that children do not naturally say thank you? I have never known a child have “thank you” be among their first words. In fact, I have never known a child to say thank you without being told to do so! This highlights the reality that thankfulness is not natural to our fallen…

14 Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. 15 I am speaking as to wise people. Judge for yourselves what I say. 16 The cup of blessing that we give thanks for, is it not a sharing in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a sharing in the body of Christ? 17 Because there is one…

In this message, let’s do some communion contemplation, and consider some sights that we see from the various gazes that a believer naturally takes when engaged in meaningful partaking according to Jesus’ command for this wonderful Ordinance He gave to His blood-bought church.

As we have been walking through the book of 1 Corinthians we have been discovering that ministry is messy. People are messy. The world is messy. When a person finds Jesus through the gospel message. The verbiage changes. Jesus washes you with the water of the word and makes you clean. Isiah says “Though…
