September 2, 2018 Morning Worship Service and Observance of The Lord’s Supper | Pastor Carl McCray
Special music: Jerry Shepherd singing “Wonderful Merciful Savior”
Message: Being Together is Better
As we observe the Lord’s Supper with a spirit of reverence, we celebrate and rejoice together for everything God has done for us. We aught to be overwhelmed with the deepest sense of awe that God would send His Son to pay the penalty of our sins. As a follower of Christ, we are to partake of The Lord’s Supper in the remembrance of the Lord. As we do, we are proclaiming His redemptive death on our behalf.
The death of Jesus reveals:
- The awfulness of sin (1 Corinthians 15:3)
- The greatness of God’s love for sinners (John 3:16, Romans 5:8)
- The value of a lost soul
As we consider the death of Jesus, there is one thing we cannot do. We cannot leave Jesus in the tomb. Remember, He has risen and is in Heaven!
“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29 NIV
