Lord’s Supper (Revelation 12:11)

The devil is pleased when people hold any unbiblical view of him, whether they deny his existence or worship him. The devil always seeks to create confusion about his true nature and purposes. God’s Word exposes Satan’s devious and deceitful nature as the “father of lies” (John 8:44, NASB) and warning us that he “disguises himself as an angel of light” (2 Cor. 11:14; cf. 2 Cor. 11:3, NASB) so that he can more easily deceive people. The apostle Paul expressed his concern about the devil saying, “Satan will not outsmart us. For we are familiar with his evil schemes” (2 Cor. 2:11, NLT). Later in Ephesians Paul would caution us saying, “Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil” (v.11, NLT). Continue reading

Lord’s Supper: Be Thankful

Today, we observe the Lord’s Supper and I want us to focus on the power of giving thanks to God.

Someone once said, “I may not be where I want to be, but thank God I am not where I used to be.” As we think through the Lord’s Supper we are going to encounter that truth. When we observe the Lord’s Supper we not only think about what Jesus went through on the cross, but we remember what He has done for us and in us because of the cross and resurrection.

Someone else once said, “The best way to show my gratitude to God is to accept everything, even my problems, with joy.” We will see this today. We will see Jesus give thanks for something very difficult that was about to happen to Him.

Let’s get started. Continue reading

Jesus: The Lord’s Supper (Mark 14:22-26, Part 2)

You and I are forgetful people. We need to be reminded of what is important, right, and significant in our lives. The Devil wants you to be distracted from the important. He wants you to forget your new values, your new love, your new life, and your new relationship in Christ with the Heavenly Father. He wants your heart and mind to be preoccupied with other interest rather than your interest in Jesus. He wants you to be unfocused and inattentive to what God has done for you and in you.

Remember Me, Remember Me (Luke 22:17-19; 23:39-43)

Today, we observe the Lord’s Supper. One of the major themes of the Lord’s Supper is remembering. Remembering the past impacts the present. When you forget something significant you begin living for the insignificant. This is why Jesus wants us to think about Him and to remember Him. When we remember His love for us it impacts our love for Him and ultimately our love for others. Remembering the past impacts the present.

Here is what we are going to do today. We are going to look at two important statements: one by Jesus and one by the thief on the cross. They both said remember me. Let’s start with Jesus. Continue reading

Lord’s Supper: Remembrance
