The Host Has Said; “Come and Dine”

by Mike McIntyre

  1. The Communion is a Spiritual Feast.
  2. A feast is a celebration.
  3. We are to celebrate the finished work of Christ.
  4. The banquet table has been set.
  5. “God, our Host” as provided all that we need in order to partake of the feast of:
  6. Salvation.
  7. Access to his throne.
  8. Aid during our time of need.
  9. And much more!
  10. We are to rejoice in what “God our Host” has done for us:
  11. Sacrificed his body so that we might live anew.
  12. Gave his blood to be the payment for our sin.

III. We need only to put on the wedding garment of salvation:

  1. We identify ourselves with his death and resurrection. (Galatians 2:20).

Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: neverthless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

The Communion:

Matthew 26: 26-29

Mat 26:26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.

Mat 26:27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;

Mat 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Mat 26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.

Conclusion:  Luke 22:19 “And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.” We take Communion to remember what Christ has done for us.
