“How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts! My soul longs, yes, faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and flesh sing for joy to the living God.”Psalm 84:1-2

What is the Lord’s supper?
The Lord’s supper is an ordinance of the New Testament, instituted by Jesus Christ; wherein by giving and receiving bread and wine, according to his appointment, his death is shown forth, and the worthy receivers are, not after a corporal and carnal manner, but by faith, made partakers of his body and blood, with all his benefits, to their spiritual nourishment and growth in grace.¹
¹ Matthew 26:26–28; 1 Corinthians 11:23–26; 10:16
Today, most churches will celebrate the communion table, the LORD’s supper. Let us pray that God may prepare our hearts through diligent and deep examination our of hearts and ways in view of this glorious ordinance as we proclaim the death of His Son and wait for His return.
Let us also pray that we may truly abide in Him. The LORD’s Day is a precious time not only to worship the LORD but also to ‘abide’ with His people. Let us seek to minister to our brethren, regular attendees, and visitors (hopefully new ones!).
Blessed LORD’s Day!
