“For what I received from the Lord I also delivered to you…For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes” (1 Corinthians 11:23, 26).
What is the Lord’s Supper?
Jesus Christ is the Bread of Life. He says: “Come, for those who eat this bread and drink this cup will never hunger or thirst, but be raised up on the Last Day” (John 6). We believe Jesus when He says, “This is my body” and “This is my blood given and shed for you for the forgiveness of your sins.” We believe that we receive the true body and blood of Jesus when we eat the bread and drink the wine of the Lord’s Supper. Faith takes hold of the promised forgiveness that God’s Word has put into the Lord’s Supper.
Who should receive the Lord’s Supper?
Those who receive the Lord’s Supper should be believers in Christ (Hebrews 11:6); be sorry for their sins (Proverbs 28:13); believe that Christ offers His true body and blood with the bread and wine (1 Corinthians 10:16); and be willing to forgive those who have sinned against them (Matthew 6:14-15).
