Sermon Text: Philippians 2:14-18

As we prepare to worship the Lord in Word and sacrament, consider these words from Howard Griffith:

The Supper is the meal of the new covenant in which we joyfully acknowledge the redemption accomplished by Christ’s death and receive the signs of our participation in him. We do that as we await his return. We live in the period between his great redeeming cross and our glorified eating and drinking in the Kingdom of God (Matt. 26:29; Mark 14:25; Luke 22:16). The great meal of all God’s redeemed people in the Kingdom of God, the wedding supper of the Lamb, is coming. Jesus’ death guaranteed that. So as we look back with faith, we look ahead also with faith to that great day. (Spreading the Feast, p. 72)
