Lord's Supper

The Christian is bred by the Word and must be fed by it. William Gurnall
John 6:52-56 "Then the Jews began to argue with one another, saying, ‘How can this man
give us His flesh to eat?’ 53 So Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat
the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves. 54 He who
eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.
55 For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. 56 He who eats My flesh and
drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.’ "

Reasons to Keep the Lord's Day Holy #8. The Sabbath Remains for the Christian - Part
3. The sabbaths that are now obsolete belong to the feasts of the ceremonial law - THE
weekly Sabbath of the moral law is still in effect. "Therefore no one is to act as your judge
in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day— 17
things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ."
