Anglican Daily Fountain Devotional 9 April 2020 – The Lord’s Supper

TOPIC: The Lord’s Supper

SCRIPTURE: Matthew 26:17-30

OUTLINE: Christ instituted the Lord’s Supper as one of the ordinances which He charged His followers to practise on regular basis in this passage (Matt. 26:26-29). Note that the preparations made in vs. 17-20 are for the Passover. The disciples knew nothing about the Lord’s intentions to institute a new ordinance in His name. They thought that Christ was preparing to celebrate the Jewish Passover.

This is significant because it shows that Christ tied both His death and the Lord’s Supper to the Passover. This implies that Christ was proclaiming Himself to be the Messiah whom Israel anticipated. Christ was also proclaiming the Lord’s Supper to be the new celebration (26-29), which was to replace the Passover; signifying man’s celebration of God’s deliverance from bondage (Exo. 13: 3-10).

Jesus revealed that the one who would betray Him was dining with them on the same table and Judas’ hypocrisy manifested in v. 25. Are we dining on Jesus’ table (Holy Eucharist) and betraying Him by our sinful lives? This is very dangerous. It brought eternal doom to Judas.Celebration of the Lord’s Supper is a celebration of freedom from bondage of sin. Let us not bring damnation on our lives by reason of the Lord’s Supper (1 Cor. 11:17-30).

KEY NOTE: “O God, You are more awesome than Your holy places. The God of Israel is He who gives strength and power to His people.” (Psalm 68:35)

PRAYER POINT: Pray that you should not partake in the Lord’s Supper and live in the bondage of sin.
