THE LORDS SUPPER IS BOTH A MEMORIAL AND A COMMUNION

(See: Matthew 26:26-29; Luke 2:19-22; I Corinthians 10:16-17: 1123-30.)

As a memorial the Lord’s Supper is both commemorate! and declared.

Jesus said, (Matthew 26:26-29 NKJB And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed {it} and broke {it}, and gave {it} to the disciples and said, Take, eat; this is My body." (27) Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave {it} to them, saying, 'Drink from it, all of you. (28) 'for this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. (29) 'But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that. day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.' Jesus did not say that we are do this in order to remember Him, but because we do remember him. b. "ln remembrance of me," in I Corinthians 11:24 - 25 means, "for a memorial of me.'(l Corinthians 11:24-25 NKJV (24) and when He had given thanks, He broke {it} and said, "Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.'(25) ln the same manner {He} also {took) tie cup after supper, saying, 'This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink {it}, in remembrance of Me-" Those who cherish the memory of Christ in their hearts shall gladly show it in faithfully keeping the sacred feast. They do this for a memorial of Christ, His birth, life, teachings, obedience, good deeds, His death, burial, resurrection, and ascension. The world builds great monuments to commemorate the lives and deeds of great men, so we eat this feast to commemorate the greatest of all men. out lord Jesus Christ. (The Declarative to continue)
