Words fOR Life



John 6:63

63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life

Communion

Santa Cena


“for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.”

“porque ha sido lanzado fuera el acusador de nuestros hermanos, el que los acusaba delante de nuestro Dios día y noche.”


11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”

11” Y ellos le han vencido por medio de la sangre del Cordero y de la palabra del testimonio de ellos, y menospreciaron sus vidas hasta la muerte.”


God’s people have always been under attack by the accuser, and today it is the same.

The future will surely be worse.


It is not God that is against you, but His enemy who is also our enemy.


1 Peter 4:12 – 14 12 Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;

1 Pedro 4:12-14 12 Amados, no os sorprendáis del fuego de prueba que os ha sobrevenido, como si alguna cosa extraña os aconteciese,


13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.

13 sino gozaos por cuanto sois participantes de los padecimientos de Cristo, para que también en la revelación de su gloria os gocéis con gran alegría.


14 If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.

14 Si sois vituperados por el nombre de Cristo, sois bienaventurados, porque el glorioso Espíritu de Dios reposa sobre vosotros.


But we are “overcomers.”


We are overcomers because we are willing not only to live for Him, but also because it is to the death.


We are overcomers because we are willing to confess Him as Lord: Out Testimony.


And we are overcomers because of the Blood of the Lamb.

The Blood will never lose its power because it was the final and ultimate sacrifice.


And today we recall that sacrifice as we come together around the Lord’s table.


Luke 22:14 – 20 14 When the hour had come, He sat down, and the twelve apostles with Him.

Lucas 22:14-20 14 Cuando era la hora, se sentó a la mesa, y con él los apóstoles.


15 Then He said to them, “With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer;

15 Y les dijo: !!Cuánto he deseado comer con vosotros esta pascua antes que padezca!


16 for I say to you, I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”

16 Porque os digo que no la comeré más, hasta que se cumpla en el reino de Dios.


17 Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, “Take this and divide it among yourselves;

17 Y habiendo tomado la copa, dio gracias, y dijo: Tomad esto, y repartidlo entre vosotros;


18 for I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.”

18 porque os digo que no beberé más del fruto de la vid, hasta que el reino de Dios venga.


19 And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”

19 Y tomó el pan y dio gracias, y lo partió y les dio, diciendo: Esto es mi cuerpo, que por vosotros es dado; haced esto en memoria de mí.


20 Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.

20 De igual manera, después que hubo cenado, tomó la copa, diciendo: Esta copa es el nuevo pacto en mi sangre, que por vosotros se derrama.


1 Corinthians 11:23 – 26 23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread;

1 Corintios 11:23 – 26 23 Porque yo recibí del Señor lo que también os he enseñado: Que el Señor Jesús, la noche que fue entregado, tomó pan;


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

24 y habiendo dado gracias, lo partió, y dijo: Tomad, comed; esto es mi cuerpo que por vosotros es partido; haced esto en memoria de mí.


25 In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood.

25 Asimismo tomó también la copa, después de haber cenado, diciendo: Esta copa es el nuevo pacto en mi sangre;

This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

haced esto todas las veces que la bebiereis, en memoria de mí.


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

26 Así, pues, todas las veces que comiereis este pan, y bebiereis esta copa, la muerte del Señor anunciáis hasta que él venga.


The Lord’s Table

It is a place where we discover the heart of God:

“With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer;”

“Cuánto he deseado comer con vosotros esta pascua antes que padezca!”


It is a time of remembrance, of what Christ has done:

“This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”


“Esto es mi cuerpo, que por vosotros es dado; haced esto en memoria de mí.”


“Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”

“Tomad, comed; esto es mi cuerpo que por vosotros es partido; haced esto en memoria de mí.”


“This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

“Esta copa es el nuevo pacto en mi sangre, que por vosotros se derrama.”

It signifies a new relationship:


“This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.”

“Esta copa es el nuevo pacto en mi sangre, que por vosotros se derrama.”


It is a reminder of what is yet to come: It points to Christ’s return.

“I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”

“no la comeré más, hasta que se cumpla en el reino de Dios.”


“I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.”

“no beberé más del fruto de la vid, hasta que el reino de Dios venga.”


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

Así, pues, todas las veces que comiereis este pan, y bebiereis esta copa, la muerte del Señor anunciáis hasta que él venga.


As we partake of His body and His blood, think on these things:


1. We are overcomers by this Blood.

2. His desire is for us to be here, around this table, with Him.

3. We remember His sacrifice: To pay for our sins.

4. It represents a new beginning for us: Forgiveness for all our sins.

5. Let us look to the future: Jesus is coming again and we will be at His table.
