COMMUNION SERMON OUTLINES

by Ken Trivette

No doubt, one of the most popular hymns that has ever been written is C. Austin Miles' hymn, "In The Garden." One day as Miles read John chapter 20, his heart was deeply moved by the scene of Mary as she talked with Jesus in the garden. Miles said, "I thought to myself, this is not an experience limited to a happening almost 2000 years ago." He realized...

In terms of communion, the Lord's Supper is first an occasion of Christ communing with His people. As Luke 22:15 says, ''Earnestly desires to eat the Passover with you''. In the words with you, Jesus spoke of desiring close fellowship with His disciples, and through the symbols of the cup and the bread, He shared Himself with them. Jesus was the Host of the Table, not as a distant...

We're thinking tonight from 1 Corinthians 10 on this subject: The Communion Table. So take God's word and join me for a few minutes in 1 Corinthians 10. Now in our blended service this morning .. we were in this 10th chapter of 1 Corinthians where we learned about God's Restraining Power. We read in verse 13, "No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful...

Themes: The Lord's Supper is not only an expression of worship for believers, but by its very nature it is evangelistic. In the Supper the work of Christ is held up as an invitation for people to trust in the Lord. For believers, the Lord's Supper is an occasion for spiritual renewal and refocusing of kingdom...

The Touch of Jesus (for Holy Communion) by Tony R. Nester
This Scripture is a story of two people who need Jesus. Jairus, an important man who leads a synagogue, wants Jesus to touch his daughter and heal her before she dies. The other, an unnamed woman, wants to secretly touch a piece of Jesus' clothing so that she might be healed of her chronic hemorrhaging. Both find deliverance in making contact with Jesus...

The Lord's Supper as an act of worship reminds us of God's grace in Christ and that because of His grace we belong to God! As we prepare our lives for this time of worship, I want to reflect on the theme from our text, The Grace of Belonging. This text in Deuteronomy spoke to the Israelites the reality that they belonged to God (v.6) because of His grace (vv.7-8). And because of that grace of God, as an expression...

To Those Who Feel Unfit for the Communion by Charles H. Spurgeon
Brethren, it should be much to our joy that we do not serve under the ceremonial law, nor live within the legal dispensation. The legal economy exhibited to the people a multitude of types and figures, and consequently it laid down many rules and rituals, and these were enacted with such solemn and terrible penalties, that the people were in constant fear of offending, and found obedience...

It is simple and plain compared to all that surrounds it. Almost everything else towers above it. Yet the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. leaves an unforgettable impression upon all who visit. The 247 ft long, 10 foot tall black granite wall stands between the towering Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial, just to the right of the reflecting pool as you face the Lincoln...

This evening we pick up our study with the discussion of the Lord's Supper or Holy Communion. The Lord's Supper finds its roots in the Passover--the Jewish celebration of deliverance from Egyptian bondage, when they sacrificed the Paschal Lamb, shedding its blood and applying it to the door posts and the lintels of their houses...

Today, as all of us prepare our hearts to remember Jesus Christ through the observance of the Ordinance of the Lord's Supper, I'd like us to spend some time considering just what this service is all about. This may help each of us get even more out of this ordinance, in that we'll have our minds and thoughts more squarely upon our Lord, Jesus Christ...

Today we celebrate the communion of saints in All Saints Sunday. Today we celebrate the Christening of three new saints by baptizing three people in two different services. First I would like to tell you about a rather large and very old baptismal font.While touring Israel in 1977, I visited a 5th century Byzantine church where the...

Let us embark upon another journey into God's Word to find His answer about the Lord's Table, or about the giving of the wine and the bread at communion. As I studied this sanctioned sacrament, the Lord said it is all about "Passover." I then opened my Bible to the Gospel of Matthew and read:Now it came to pass, when Jesus had...

A young child once was heard screaming and crying out of control, he had shoved his hand into a very expensive Chinese vase in another room and could not retract his hand - it was stuck! In pain he continued pulling, and crying - as the parents and adult guests ran into the room to find the child almost out of control, they tried...

In the 4th century a monk named Evagrio Pontico made a list of eight evil thoughts: gluttony, lust, greed, pride, envy, anger, boasting and sloth. The list was spread widely and became well accepted as common sins which needed to be avoided.Two hundred years later in 590 AD Gregory I, who Protestants refer to as the first Pope, reduced the list to...

by Charles H. Spurgeon

The expression walking together is often used in Scripture as a figure for communion. "Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him." Communion, if it be thorough and entire, implies activity. It is not merely contemplation, it is action; hence, inasmuch as walking is an active exercise, and walking with a man is communion with...

James Merritt said, ''Normally people are remembered for what they accomplished during their lives - the things they did to make a difference-good or bad - in the lives of others. We know George Washington was the first president of the United States and was a famous general in the Revolutionary War. Benjamin Franklin and...

Today, as we open to Ephesians 4, we are Christ's church; and, as a member of Christ's Church, we each need to understand what God expects from us.Christ's plan for each of us is to focus on our part of the mending/equipping, and building up/edifying of...
