Celebrating What Christ Accomplished

Matthew 26:26-29

Preparing your heart for the sermon:

  • What does the finished work of Christ refer to?  What is significant about saying “finished”?
  • Why did Christ institute the Lord’s Table?
  • Why should the Lord’s Supper be a solemn occasion?  Why should it also be a time of celebration?

Other passages to consider – Ex 12:1-28; 24:7-8; Ps 103; Isa 1:18; 53; Jer 31:31-34; Mark 10:32-45; Luke 22:7-30; 1 Cor 10:14-22; 11:17-34; Rev 19:6-10

Digging Deeper:

  • How does taking the Lord’s Supper help us to look forward to Christ’s return?
  • We are told to examine ourselves before we take the Lord’s Supper.  What should we be looking for?
  • What steps can we take to ensure that God is glorified and the Body strengthened through our celebration of the Lord’s Table?
  • How should the truth of being set free from sin affect your life?

Singular Devotion

By Pastor Jathan

Sermon - Singular Devotion - 1 Corinthians 10:14-22

Preparing my heart for the sermon:

  • How is Paul’s command to flee from idolatry different that what the Corinthians were currently doing?
  • What is God jealous for?  Why is this right and good?
  • What happens when we take the Lord’s Supper?

Other passages to consider – Ex 20:1-6; Deut 32:15-24; Joshua 24:12-24; Ps 86:8-13; Matt 22:34-40; 1 Cor 8-10; Eph 6:10-20; 2 Cor 4:3-6; 6:14-7:1; James 4:1-10; 1 Jn 2: 15-17

Digging Deeper:

  • Am I worshipping Christ alone or have I tried to blend in other beliefs and practices?
  • What in my life is hindering my devotion to Christ?  What changes do I need to make?
  • How should the reality of demonic activity affect how I live?
  • The Corinthians learned that eating idol food was serious and dangerous.  Am I participating in anything that is evil or unwise?
