Encouraging Broader Participation in the Lord’s Supper
Have you ever wished that more of the men in your assembly would participate in the Lord’s Supper, leading the congregation in spontaneous worship of our Lord Jesus?
Well, this book may be of help. Within the context of passing on the same simple and practical guidelines that he used to encourage and equip some of the men in his home assembly, Mike Stephenson emphasizes the privilege men have in carrying out this particular aspect of New Testament priesthood.
Our Lord is looking for (and deserves!) our heartfelt love, adoration, and gratitude. It is the author’s firm conviction that any believing man who truly desires to please the Lord and is willing to express his worship audibly can learn to share in this wonderful time of remembrance and worship of our God and Savior.
