The Lord’s Supper

   Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper, when He and His disciple’s observed the final Passover Supper, or as we call it, The Last Supper.  He did not tell us how often to observe it, and a firm case cannot be made from the book of Acts that they observed it each time they met.  Jesus simply said that as often as we observed it, we were to do so in memory of Him.   The Lord’s Supper was not given as a necessary step to be ready for heaven, but as a memorial for the church.  Much more could be said on matters, such as open vs. closed communion, or what the supper is to properly be called, but for now I will simply remind you that it is an observance by which we remember the Lord’s death until He comes again.
