Sermon Tag: Communion
August 29 | Luke 22:14-23 | Learned Hospitality
The meal Jesus gave us teaches us about hospitality. God welcomes us to His Table even though we might as well be strangers … in light of this, how could we not welcome others?
August 22 | I John 4:7-21 | The Table of Love
This meal reinforces what we know about love; namely, that God is love, that God loves us first, that we learn to love God in return, etc.
August 15 | I Cor. 11:23-26 & I Cor. 12:12-31 | The Body of Christ, Part 2
Just as the body of Christ is broken for us at the Table, we—the body of Christ—are to be broken for each other (i.e., our own places of brokenness actually help others in a profound way)
August 8 | I Corinthians 11:23-26 & I Corinthians 12:12-31 | The Body of Christ
The body of Christ is constituted at the Supper that features the body of Christ.
August 1 | 2 Samuel 9:1-13 | A Seat at the King’s Table
This story seems to be an allegory for all of us. We are all like Mephibosheth in that we are entirely dependent on the host of the Table to welcome us to the Table. And even though it is the King’s Table, the King welcomes the “unworthy”! How ridiculous is that?
July 25 | 2 Corinthians 12:1-10 | A Taste of Our Own Insufficiency
The Supper is a source of glorious humbling. We can neither save ourselves nor save the world. We are utterly dependent on God and the Supper is a reminder of that dependence.
July 18 | John 6 | For the Life of the World by guest preacher Winn Collier
Winn Collier, Professor at Western Seminary (Holland, MI) and Director of the Eugene Peterson Center for Christian Imagination preaches this morning on Jesus as the bread of life.
July 11 | 1 Corinthians 11:17-34 | Abuses at the Lord’s Supper by Drew Poppleton
The Institution of the Lord’s Supper (vv. 23-26) is sandwiched between various warnings, warnings we ought to heed.
July 4 | I Corinthians 10:1-22 | Challenging Our Idols by Drew Poppleton
The Lord’s Supper has a prophetic effect on the Church — it calls people away from idolatrous narratives and back to the Gospel narrative. In that way, we taste and see that our communion with Christ is both wonderful and dangerous.
