Topic: Christian Living Scripture: 1 Corinthians 11:17–34

The apostle Paul established the sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper in the church at Corinth when he planted it. The apostle Paul also affirmed the Lord’s Supper as a non-negotiable act of obedience to the Lord for all believers


1. Come Often (and Together) - (1 Cor. 11:25-26).
2. Come With Love For Others - (1 Cor. 11:17-22, 33-34)
3. Come With Remembrance of the Lord (1 Cor. 11:23-26)
4. Come With Examination of Yourself (1 Cor. 11:27-34)

 CommunionIn the Lord’s Supper, Jesus left us a picture of Himself for us to remember Him by. We should pause and look at it often. When we do, it should remind us of His great love for us as shown supremely on the cross. It should fill our hearts with the desire to see Him when He comes again. It should make us look to ourselves to ask, “Is there anything in my life that needs to be dealt with before I meet my Bridegroom face to face?” It should touch our hearts and make us say, “Thank God for what He has given us in Christ!” The Lord’s Supper is a time to remember our beloved Saviour.
