  • At the Lord’s Supper, we remember and proclaim Jesus’ death (1 Cor. 11:25–26).
  • At the Lord’s Supper, we remember the saving benefits of Christ’s sacrifice for us (1 Cor. 10:16–17).
  • At the Lord’s Supper, we experience a foretaste of the heavenly banquet.

The Lord’s Supper is an appetizer for the feast that will commence on the day when Christ reunites heaven and earth. - Bobby Jamieson

Consider God’s promises in Isaiah 25:6–8

6 In Jerusalem, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies will spread a wonderful feast for all the people of the world. It will be a delicious banquet with clear, well-aged wine and choice meat. 7 There he will remove the cloud of gloom, the shadow of death that hangs over the earth. 8 He will swallow up death forever! The Sovereign LORD will wipe away all tears. He will remove forever all insults and mockery against his land and people. The LORD has spoken!

  • On that day, tears and shame will be no more.
  • On that day, the shadow of death that now smothers us all will not just be lifted but consumed.
  • On that day, death won’t be delayed but devoured.

If all these miseries will be removed, what will take their place?

  • A feast.
  • A feast of the best food and drink.
  • A feast with and for God's people.
  • A feast forever.

This gathering at the table is but an appetizer, as we look forward to that day together church.
