"Problems In The Church"

Problem #4 - "Wrong Conduct at the Lord’s Supper

1CORINTHIANS 11:17-34

INTRODUCTION:

One writer has said “The Lord Supper is the highest expression and the holiest exercise of Christian worship.” However, in Corinth it had dropped to such a low secular level that Paul found it necessary to abruptly leave the topic about head coverings (11:1-16) and begin a totally different teaching relating to the Lord’s Supper. He had apparently received a report that there were divisions and inequalities when the Corinthian Christians came together to have a fellowship meal which was followed by the Lord’s Supper. We do not have a fellowship meal today before taking communion. Even though this is not a common practice for us, there are still irregularities when we come together for communion. As we look at the text tonight, we want to reiterate the seriousness of observing the Lord’s Supper and really consider our self-examination before taking communion.

MANNER OF THEIR “CALLING IN CHRIST”...SO PAUL POINTED OUT SEVERAL
IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF “A CHRISTIAN CALLING”...LET’S TAKE A LOOK @
THEM:
