The Saviour calls His people to regularly observe His Supper. But do we have a clear awareness of all that the Lord's Supper means? Here are nine purposes behind the Lord's Supper, each one a vital spiritual theme. Together, they provide a rich basis for thought and prayer at the Table of the Lord.
The author provides a further suggested plan for reflection and prayer drawn from Paul's words in 1 Corinthians 11.23-33. This proposes five directions in which believers should look, spiritually, in order to honour the Lord's instructions.
The more we appreciate the purposes of the Supper, the more we shall know spiritual communion, and be moved to wonder, love and praise.
