Church Questions is a series that seeks to provide ordinary Christians with sound and accessible biblical teaching by answering common questions about church life. Each volume offers biblical answers and practical applications with the goal of nurturing healthy church practice and commitment.

Have you taken the Lord’s Supper without understanding what it means? Do you wonder about its relevance to your Christian life? This ordinance doesn’t have to be mysterious. Pastor Aubrey Sequeira shares five ways the Lord’s Supper enriches the church as it invites believers to look backward (remembrance), outward (togetherness), upward (spiritual nourishment), inward (reflection), and forward (anticipation).

Top Highlights

“In baptism, at least two things happen: (1) a Christian publicly identifies with Jesus and his people, and (2) a church publicly affirms the believer and receives him or her into Jesus’s family. At the Lord’s Supper, Christians renew their commitment both to Jesus and one another; they affirm their ongoing faith in Jesus and their mutual membership in his family. Together, baptism and the Lord’s Supper identify who is ‘in’ and who is ‘out’ in a local church—they show us who belongs to the family.” (Page 21)

“Jesus used a Passover meal to point his disciples to a new and greater Passover sacrifice—the bread representing his body and the wine representing his blood.” (Page 15)

“The Lord’s Supper is no different. Yes, it’s a meal where we remember Jesus and what he has done for us individually. But it’s also a family meal where we remember Jesus together.” (Pages 17–18)

“Just like the Passover meal recalled God’s rescue of Israel, the Lord’s Supper reminds Jesus’s people of how he’s rescued us. Yet this meal commemorates a far greater salvation.” (Page 14)

“In the Lord’s Supper, Jesus gives us a meal to evoke memories—to remember what he has done for us.” (Page 12)

Christians are pressed by very real questions. How does Scripture structure a church, order worship, organize ministry, and define biblical leadership? Those are just examples of the questions that are answered clearly, carefully, and winsomely in this new series from 9Marks. I am so thankful for this ministry and for its incredibly healthy and hopeful influence in so many faithful churches. I eagerly commend this series.

—R. Albert Mohler Jr., President and Centennial Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Sincere questions deserve thoughtful answers. If you’re not sure where to start in answering these questions, let this series serve as a diving board into the pool. These minibooks are winsomely to-the-point and great to read together with one friend or one hundred friends.

As a pastor, I get asked lots of questions. I’m approached by unbelievers seeking to understand the gospel, new believers unsure about next steps, and maturing believers wanting help answering questions from their Christian family, friends, neighbors, or coworkers. It’s in these moments that I wish I had a book to give them that was brief, answered their questions, and pointed them in the right direction for further study. Church Questions is a series that provides just that. Each booklet tackles one question in a biblical, brief, and practical manner. The series may be called Church Questions, but it could be called ‘Church Answers.’ I intend to pick these up by the dozens and give them away regularly. You should too.

—Juan R. Sanchez, Senior Pastor, High Pointe Baptist Church, Austin, Texas; author, The Leadership Formula
