Different religious groups believe different things about the Lord’s Supper. Today, we are going to see exactly what the Bible says about this Holy ordinance commanded by Jesus the night before He was crucified.
The Bible says in 1Corinthians 11:23-26 “For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.”
Christians are to partake of the Lord’s Supper in order to remember Jesus’ death. The bread and wine (grape juice) are only symbols of Christ’s body and blood. They do not actually turn into the body and blood of Christ.
In addition, The Lord’s Supper is very Holy, and unsaved people are to never partake of it. Furthermore, even a Christian must make sure that he or she is right with God before partaking of it, or they could become sick or even die by God’s judgement.
1Co 11:27-32 “Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
Therefore, the Lord’s Supper is to be kept very reverently, and not lightly.
