Lord's Supper Service, Pastor David Welch, October 15, 2023

October 15, 2023




32 "They came to a place named Gethsemane; and He said to His disciples, “Sit here until I have prayed.”

33 And He took with Him Peter and James and John, and began to be very distressed and troubled.

34 And He said to them, “My soul is deeply grieved to the point of death; remain here and keep watch.”

35 And He went a little beyond them, and fell to the ground and began to pray that if it were possible, the hour might pass Him by.

36 And He was saying, “Abba! Father! All things are possible for You; remove this cup from Me; yet not what I will, but what You will.”


37 And He came and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “Simon, are you asleep? Could you not keep watch for one hour?

38 “Keep watching and praying that you may not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

39 Again He went away and prayed, saying the same words.

40 And again He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy; and they did not know what to answer Him.

41 And He came the third time, and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? It is enough; the hour has come; behold, the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.


42 “Get up, let us be going; behold, the one who betrays Me is at hand!”

43 Immediately while He was still speaking, Judas, one of the twelve, came up accompanied by a crowd with swords and clubs, who were from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.

44 Now he who was betraying Him had given them a signal, saying, “Whomever I kiss, He is the one; seize Him and lead Him away under guard.”

45 After coming, Judas immediately went to Him, saying, “Rabbi!” and kissed Him.

46 They laid hands on Him and seized Him."

Mark 14:32-46 (NASB1995)




The Idea:

I want you to see Jesus in reality. And I want you to see the reality in what He has done for you.



The reality of Jesus, and the reality of what He has done for you:


I. See The Reality Of His Experience


33 "And He took with Him Peter and James and John, and began to be very distressed and troubled.

34 And He said to them, “My soul is deeply grieved to the point of death; remain here and keep watch.”

Mark 14:33-34




II. See The Reality Of God’s Wrath


35 "And He went a little beyond them, and fell to the ground and began to pray that if it were possible, the hour might pass Him by.

36 And He was saying, “Abba! Father! All things are possible for You; remove this cup from Me; yet not what I will, but what You will.”

Mark 14:35-36




Ezekiel 23 says “you will drink a cup of wrath, large and deep, full of ruin and desolation, and you’ll tear away at your chest.”




III. See The Reality Of Your Worth To Him


41 "… It is enough; the hour has come; behold, the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners. 42 “Get up, let us be going; behold, the one who betrays Me is at hand!”

...

46 They laid hands on Him and seized Him."

Mark 14:41-42, 46




The Lord's Supper


23 "For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread;

24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”

25 In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”


26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.

27 Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.

28 But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup.

29 For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly."
