Bible Text: 1 Corinthians 11: 17-34 |

There are 2 ordinances the local church should partake in:

  1. the Lord's supper
  2. baptism.

When we partake of the Lord's, supper, it should be obediently. We should remove "self" from it. It is not for our benefit or gain, but to remember Jesus dying on the cross.

We ought not to be divided in the church among ourselves. Handle problems among each other one-on-one. This is God's way. We ought not to abuse the Lord's supper, such as using the Lord's supper to eat a full meal. This can cause division, too. How could we partake in the Lord's supper with issues in the church? How could we focus on the Lord's supper with sin in the church and in our lives, and focus solely on Christ? Anyone in division is in terrible danger. Get it right! Ask Christ to forgive you and partake in the Lord's supper and focus on and remembering, honoring, and being thankful for what Christ did for us with a clean conscious.
