Short Lessons For The Lord’s Supper

By Lester A. Doyle, Jr.

The Feast

When Christ came to earth, he shared the poverty of our world. But, now being on the right hand of God, he shares with us the riches of his world.

We come to his table this morning to recall his death and its glorious purpose and to feast upon the bread of life. Here our souls are fed as we commune with our Savior.

John 6:35 says, “And Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.”‘ If you hunger physically, you will not be satisfied at this table. But our spiritual hunger and thirst will be filled here.

Although the Lord’s supper was brought about by his death, it is the feast of life for us as Christians.
