Our second preparatory sermon deals with an examination of our love for the brethren before we come to commune to the Lord's Supper. Having grown in anticipation for meeting with Christ, we also must see if we are longing to commune with one another and know that "we being many are one" and are all partakers of that "one bread", Jesus Christ Himself. 1 Corinthians 10:17.

Providence is the word we use to describe how God governs, attends to, watches over, and cares for His creation. When Jesus sees that the shepherds have left the sheep to fend for themselves, He has pity and compassion on them. He finds us lost, vulnerable, and hungry, but sees to it that we are gathered in, protected, and well-fed. He calls and equips under-shepherds to carry out His work, but everything ultimately comes from His hand. When we are fed by Jesus, our supply never runs out. In His ministry as the great shepherd, Christ shows us that He is not only the true and better Moses, but also the true and better Elisha, healing the sick, giving sight to the blind, raising the dead, producing life from His grave, and providing for our needs from a never-ending storehouse. Receive His rest and His gifts with thankfulness.
The relationship between the pastor and the church members is a very special and important one. If it isn't right the church isn't going to succeed, and there will far reaching consequences in the lives of the members and their families. It is like all other human relationships that are important in that it should be permanent and not temporary. It should be based on love, just as these other relationships, and not simply on laws and duty. If the church is going to be able to fulfill its mission and purpose the pastor must truly love the people, the people must truly love the pastor, and the people must truly love one another. What is done must be done in the spirit of love and cooperation and not strife or selfishness.
An overview of Robert Murray McCheyne's life of communion with God. A student of Thomas Chalmers , he taught McCheyne 4 key things of importance in relation to holiness. 1st - Seeking approval of God as first principle. 2nd - Never be satisfied with growth in holiness. 3rd - Giving themselves to their true work. And 4 - A direct dealing with men concerning their salvation. It was living according to these principles which made McCheyne a godly man as a minister.
2 Peter 1:11-15
...for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
For this reason I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things, though you know and are established in the present truth. Yes, I think it is right, as long as I am in this tent, to stir you up by reminding you, knowing that shortly I must put off my tent, just as our Lord Jesus Christ showed me. Moreover I will be careful to ensure that you always have a reminder of these things after my decease.
