Christ Jesus devised the Lord's Supper and asked his followers to carry it out in his memory ("In remembrance of me"). Today we will remember how he came as a meek Lamb in humiliation to serve us, even to the extent of giving his life as a sacrifice for our sins on the cross. We will also examine the fact that this memorial points to the future, ("Ye do show the Lord's death til he come")
We will use Scripture itself to imagine what it would be like to see him, next time, not in humiliation, but in glorification; to see the risen, splendid Christ face to face - Can there be anything more encouraging and inspiring than this doctrine? than these truths bound up in this object lesson of the Lord's Supper? One more, climaxing it all. One that has powerful and practical implications for all of the the human race (especially all those who have believed).
