Confessing the Wonders of Our Salvation (I Corinthians 11:23-26). Since the birth of Christ’s Church, from the dark passages of the catacombs to the private chambers of homes along the streets of Roman cities across the Empire, to this gathering this morning—every believer of all the ages have shared something.
There is a tie that binds every believer to Christ and to each other. Tonight, we share that amazing connection—we have a common confession with every individual believing servant of God alive today either on earth or in Heaven.

When we look back across the ages, there is one worship service shared in common with all believers in every part of the world, throughout all the history of Christ’s church, and that is the Lord’s Table. We:

This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.
