1 Corinthians 11:17-34

The thing that was supposed to bring the Corinthian church together was splitting them apart – the Lord’s Supper. Instead of worship and care for each other, they were so absorbed in themselves people were starving around them and they didn’t seem to care! In fact, their practice was so contrary to Jesus’ intentions (John 13:2-5, 34-35), they couldn’t even truly call it the Lord’s Supper (1 Corinthians 11:20). The Lord’s Supper is a gift to the church to show that Jesus gave His life for His people and brings them into one united body. Because it is so precious a gift, we need to practice it rightly.
