Lord’s Supper

In verses 20-22 and 33-34, Paul criticizes the Corinthians’ celebration of the Lord’s Supper.

Don’t go to church expecting to get filled up, even for a full Seder. Go with a spiritual focus on the meaning of Jesus’ sacrifice.

Confidence

“Follow my example as I follow the example of Christ” (v. 1).

What a bold claim.

But if I followed Jesus’ example consistently, I could get away with making this suggestion, too.
