Sunday, December 4, 2005

Sunday, December 4, 2005, we gathered again as the body of Christ. Stan M. taught us from 1 Corinthians 10:1-13. In this passage, Paul reminds the Corinthians (and us!) about the experiences of the children of Israel as they wandered in the desert. In spite of experiencing the spiritual and physical blessings of God, they continued to rebel. We have also experienced the spiritual and physical blessings of God (particularly salvation). However, we can also still sin. Even though we are no longer under the penalty of sin, we continue to suffer the consequences and effects of sin.

Next week, Theron S. will teach us from 1 Corinthians 10:14-22. We will also participate in the Lord's Supper. This should be an exciting time since the Scripture passage for the day includes the phrase, "Since there is one bread, we who are many are one body" (1 Cor. 10:17).

We are indeed one body, under one Lord. So, let us come together next week in order to partake of the one bread and the one cup in a worthy manner.

But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 1 Corinthians 11:28-29
