The Lord’s Supper is a reminder of what Jesus did in the past, a symbol of our present relationship with him, and a promise of what he will do in the future. Let’s survey these three aspects.
Memorials of Jesus’ death on the cross
On the evening he was betrayed, while Jesus was eating a meal with his disciples, he took some bread and said, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me” (Luke 22:19). When we participate in the Lord’s Supper, we each eat a small piece of bread in remembrance of Jesus.
