What is the Lord's Supper Called?
| In a sincere effort
to speak as the oracles of God (1 Pet. 4:11) we should call the Lord's
Supper what the Holy Spirit called it (1 Cor. 11:20). Terms that man has
added to it only mislead and confuse.
It is mentioned as the "breaking of bread" in Acts 2:42 and 20:7. It is called the Lord's table in 1 Cor. 10: 21. Again, 1 Cor. 10: 16 we find the identification as the communion of the blood and the communion of the body of Christ.
It is never called a sacrament (an ordinance by the authority of the church), nor Mass, nor Eucharist. It is not a perpetual sacrifice of Christ.
The Lord's Supper is a memorial to the Christ for His life, death, resurrection and everything that He is and did. We are to remember Him each first day of the week with this precious observance with reverence and faithfulness.
