Six Directions of the Lord's Supper

Here’s a late post on last week’s sermon by the Supreme Jedi Master Soo-Inn, interestingly titled “Six Directions of the Lord’s Supper”, with the passage from 1 Cor. 11:17-34. No, it’s not self-help material (doesn’t it sound like one?), nothing like Covey or Kiyosaki. To me, there was nothing better than a refreshing look at the Lord’s Supper— freshly-toasted bread and a sparkling cup of wine.

Here’s his concised notes given last weekend.

  1. Looking back to what Christ has accomplished on the Cross (vv. 23-25)
  2. Looking forward to the day when God’s renewal programmed will be completed and we will see Christ face to face (v. 26)
  3. Looking around and realizing afresh we are one family in Christ (vv. 17-22)
  4. Looking inward to see if our lives are lived in accordance to the testimony of the Lord’s Supper (vv. 17-32)
  5. Looking outward with fresh concern for those not yet at the table (v. 36 cf. Luke 14:15-24)
  6. Looking upward and recognising the presence of the living Christ at the Lord’s Table

It’s not anything new or coined-up, but rather something he took from Michael Green. Tried Google-ing it up but didn’t quite find anything much about it, or even the original book itself (maybe I do not know the title). Nevertheless, it was a fresh perspective to look at the Eucharist, a good break from what we normally would do – get on with #1, #4 then #2, while not attempting to re-examine other perspectives.

While I was at it, I stumbled upon 6 biblical foundations for understanding the Lord’s Supper. A good theological perspective worth a look.

Hey Bro! Thanks for the summary on wat went on back home…

It IS a bit strange that this topic of Lord’s Supper was somehow laid in front of me recently,,, ie Soo Inn’s sermon, I was there at Piper’s sermon and then Steven Sim’s poem here hahaha
