1 The Lord’s Supper 1 Corinthians 11:17-34

2 17 But in the following instructions I do not commend you, because when you come together it is not for the better but for the worse. 18 For, in the first place, when you come together as a church, I hear that there are divisions among you. And I believe it in part, 19 for there must be factions among you in order that those who are genuine among you may be recognized. 20 When you come together, it is not the Lord's supper that you eat. 21 For in eating, each one goes ahead with his own meal. One goes hungry, another gets drunk. 22 What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God and humiliate those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I commend you in this? No, I will not.

3 1 Corinthians 11: For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes. 27 Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord.

4 1 Corinthians 11: Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. 30 That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died. 31 But if we judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged by the Lord, we are disciplined so that we may not be condemned along with the world. 33 So then, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for one another— 34 if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home—so that when you come together it will not be for judgment. About the other things I will give directions when I come.

5 1 Corinthians 10: Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. 15 I speak as to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. 16 The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ? 17 Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread. 18 Consider the people of Israel: are not those who eat the sacrifices participants in the altar? 19 What do I imply then? That food offered to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? 20 No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice they offer to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be participants with demons. 21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons. 22 Shall we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he?

11 The Lord’s supper reminds me…  He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree (1 Pet 2:24)  He became a curse for us, for it is written “cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree” (Gal 3:13)  He cancelled the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross (Col 2:13)  I was united with him in his death and my old self was crucified with him (Rom 6)

12 The Lord’s supper reminds me…  He opened a new and living way into God’s presence (Heb 10)  I have now been justified by his blood (Rom 5:9)  We who were once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ (Eph 2:13)  There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Rom 8:1)  I have a conscience that has been cleansed from acts that lead to death (Heb 9:14)

13 The Lord’s supper reminds me…  By his one sacrifice I have been made perfect forever and am being made holy (Heb 10:14)  I am reconciled to God, without blemish and free from accusation (Heb 10 + Col 1:22)  I am set free from the fear of death because By his death he destroyed him who holds the power of death (Heb 2:14-15)  He will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him (Heb 9:28)
