1 Corinthians 11:23-32

The Lord’s Supper

Sunday morning, October 17, 2021

Scripture: For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died. But if we judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged. But when we are judged by the Lord, we are disciplined so that we may not be condemned along with the world. (1 Corinthians 11:23–32).


Main Point: The Lord’s Supper is one of the two Christian ordinances that believers do regularly to honor the cross and resurrection of our Lord.


I. It has been received from the Lord. “I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you” (11:23).

II. It is in remembrance of the Lord. “When he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, ‘This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me’” (11:24-25).

III. It is to be regularly performed until the Lord returns. “For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes” (11:26).

IV. It is to be done in reverence for the Lord. “Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord”(11:27).

V. It requires repentance before the Lord. “Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup” (11:28).


Conclusion: We must approach the Lord’s Supper with a reverent attitude after we’ve confessed all our sins.
