Luke 22, 19-20

1.  The Jewish Passover [is] its predecessor and background and was supplanted by it.

2.  So Christ instituted this supper to commemorate his death and passion.  “This do in remembrance of me.”  It is well [that] we remember what he has suffered for us.

(1)  The bread signifies that he is the Bread of Life.  His body given for us.

(2)  The wine denotes that his shed blood brings salvation from sin.  “Ye are not redeemed by corruptible things as silver and gold…but by the precious blood of Jesus.

3.  It is a sign of a work done for us by his death & sign of our allegiance to him.

It is a seal of his covenant mercies to us.

4.  Who should take it?  All Christians.  If I am His child then I certainly have a child’s right at my Father’s table.  The Bible places no other barriers around it.  “But let a man prove (test; prove) himself, & so let him eat of the bread & drink of the cup” as a result of his own decision and not of another’s decision (1 Cor. 11, 28).
