As we are quickly approaching Easter, many churches will be participating in the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper. Here are some affirmations of what I believe the Lord’s Supper to be. I hope this will give you something to meditate upon as you prepare yourself for Communion with Christ and His Church during this special time of celebration in the resurrection of our Passover Lamb.
1. An ordinance from Christ to the Church.
2. An eulogy of Christ (eulogeo=to speak well of).
3. A thanksgiving for Christ (eucharisteo=thanksgiving).
4. A symbol of Christ’s righteous life and atoning death.
5. A participation with Christ in His life and death.
6. A fellowship with Christ’s body (the Church).
7. A memorial of Christ’s life and death.
8. A sign of Christ’s covenant with His Church.
9. An act of faith in Christ.
10. An expression of hope in His soon return.
11. A means of grace of Christ for the faithful.
12. A means of judgment of Christ on the unfaithful/unbelieving who partake.
Serious introspection is advised.

If any of my readers subscribe to The Gospel Witness, if you turn to the last page in the January and February issues you will find a couple of book reviews I submitted.
That’s all. Just wanted to promote myself.

The Reformed Forum has an excellent interview with Dr. Michael A. G. Haykin on the The Church Fathers.
Dr. Haykin is one of the greats as far as having an overall knowledge of Church History. From Jesus to Billy Graham, Dr. Haykin knows it all. And he is one of the few Baptist scholars who has devoted time to the study of the Church Fathers.
So…Tolle Audite (or Audire???)!!!
