The Lord’s Supper

Message: Faith-Life

When you have faith in Jesus Christ, it makes a difference.  It puts you on a path going in a different direction. You have different purposes, a different mission.

 Let’s think about the benefits of the death of Jesus Christ. Because of His sacrifice:

  1. We have the capacity to repent.
  2. We have a Gospel to believe.
  3. We can experience cleansing for sin.
  4. We can have a joy of being forgiven.

I have an exchanged life, a new life. I AM HEAVEN BOUND! I will not receive God’s wrath because Jesus died for me  He died for you too. Would you like to trust Christ right now?

“See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God” — 1 John‬ ‭3:1‬ ‭NASB‬‬

Avoiding Amnesia (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

When you think about memory, we should avoid amnesia – specifically spiritual amnesia. The Bible is peppered and punctuated with scriptures telling us to remember certain things. The writer of Hebrews tells us to remember those in prison as if we’re their fellow prisoners and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. He goes on to tell us to remember your leaders who spoke the Word of God with you. In Ecclesiastes, we are told to remember your Creator in the days of your youth. In Galatians, we are told to remember the poor. Paul told young Timothy to remember Jesus Christ, remember He was raised from the dead. Remember these things. The Lord wants us to remember.

Do you remember the day you were saved? Where you were when you met Jesus? Do you remember how you were eager to go to church? How your faith would move mountains? How you had excitement and enthusiasm? Have you forgotten? We aught to remember that our sin put Him on the cross. Jesus died for you and me! The death of Jesus reveals the awfulness of sin, the goodness of God’s love, the value of a lost soul, and the ONLY way to salvation. Remember… and avoid spiritual amnesia.

The Love Connection (1 Corinthians 13)

Loving God means loving others. The way you demonstrate loving God is the way you love others. Love must be the driving force behind everything that we do. If you want to strengthen your love with the Savior, show more love to others! If we really love others, we will share the Good News with them! Who did you share the Good News with today?

Do you really want to live a life of love as described in 1 Corinthians 13? Ask yourself this question: “‘Am I doing what I’m doing to love others or for my own pleasure?” Is love the driving force of your life, your marriage, work, when you serve?

Watch the video and be blessed!

“You will seek me and find me
when you seek me with all your heart.”

Jeremiah 29:13

How God Saves Dead People

Scripture: Ephesians 2:1-9

Carl McCray, Pastor


Scripture tells us in Romans 3:23 “all have sinned.” Sin is bad news, and the consequence is eternal separation from God. Praise the Lord that God intervened in what we call the Gospel! The Gospel is the Good News that God became man in Jesus Christ. He lived a life we should have lived and died a death that we should have died in our place. God intervened. Three days later we know He rose from the dead proving that he is the Son of God and offering the gift of salvation for all who repent and believe the Gospel. God intervened. God saves dead people!
The Lord's Supper

When we partake of the Lord’s Supper, we express our love for what Jesus had done and remember the high cost Jesus gave for us. We have been deemed righteous based on the death of Jesus. He paid our debt for our sins. Salvation is free. Our debt is paid in full!

“and when he [Jesus] had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.”
1 Corinthians 11:24 (NIV)


The Lord’s Supper is an…

  1. Expression – 1 Corinthians 11:24
  2. Explanation – 1 Corinthians 11:26
  3. Expectation – 1 Corinthians 11:26
  4. Examination – 1 Corinthians 11:28

Examine yourself today. Have you accepted Christ as your Savior? Have you really been saved? It’s not about knowledge – its about a relationship with Jesus and knowing Jesus as Savior and leader of your life. Remember, an inaction is a decision!
