What Should I Be Doing During the Lord’s Supper?

the-lords-supper

As we observe the Lord’s supper, we are following in ancient footsteps.

And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. (Acts 2:42)

But this sacred time can be confusing to new (and old) believers in Jesus. What should I be doing during the Lord’s supper?

  • I should be participating (1 Cor 10:14-22)
  • I should be communing with my ransomed brothers and sisters (1 Cor 11:33-34)
  • We should be giving thanks (1 Cor 11:23-24)
  • I should be remembering (1 Cor 11:25)
  • I should be examining myself (1 Cor 11:27-28)
  • I should be reflecting (1 Cor 11:29-32)
  • I should be proclaiming my Lord’s death (1 Cor 11:26a)
  • I should be anticipating our Lord’s return (1 Cor 11:26b)

And thus that dark betrayal night with the last advent we unite, by one bright chain of loving rite, until he come. (George Rawson, 1857)
