Why do we have the Lord’s Supper every week?
The Lord’s Supper is a neglected practice in many churches today. Like all of Christian worship, it is the fulfillment of patterns first established by God in the Old Testament—in which the pinnacle and goal of sacrifice was a meal in communion with God. To come to the temple and offer sacrifices, without them culminating in this meal, would have made no sense. Similarly, to come to the spiritual temple in worship, without consummating that worship in the Lord’s Supper, makes no sense of scripture’s patterns.
This is such an important principle that we have preached a series on the Lord’s Supper, within our larger series on worship. We encourage you to listen to these sermons:
