Warm-Up for Sunday: Can you recall a time when you either donated blood to a blood bank or needed blood during a surgical procedure? How did it make you feel to give or receive blood?  We’re told that a single blood donation can save up to three people who need blood during a blood transfusion. Likewise, the Bible tells us we are saved by faith in the blood of Christ (Romans 3:25) and by being immersed into His death (Romans 6:3). In a nutshell, Jesus said His blood was life (John 6:53).  During this series, we’ve learned that blood nourishes, cleanses, and protects against deadly infections. In this last message on blood, we will learn how blood infuses us with life – His life!  We will explore the depths of that infusion as it relates to the Lord’s Supper. At the end of this series, I hope we all have a deeper appreciation for the role of blood in our relationship with God. Lord willing, see you Sunday.

 

There’s INFUSION of LIFE in the Blood

Discussion Questions:

Ice Breaker: Can you recall a time when you either donated blood to a blood bank or needed blood during a surgical procedure? How did it make you feel to give or receive blood? 

 

  1. The Bible tells us that we are immersed into Jesus’ death (Romans 6:3), symbolically covered by His blood (Galatians 3:26, Revelation 7:14), and called to consume His blood (John 6:53) as a reminder of His death for us and the source of true life. What should the symbolic drinking of His blood cause us to think about?

 

  1. How often do you think the early church broke bread to reflect upon the death of Christ? (Consider Acts 2:46, 20:7)

 

  1. Since the Lord’s Supper begins by giving thanks, do you think the consuming of the bread and wine were meant to be an act of celebration or merely a somber reflection upon His sacrifice?

 

  1. In what respect does the Lord’s Supper point to a past, present, and future life? (Consider Revelation 1:18)

 

  1. In what sense is Jesus’ blood real food?
