January 11 – 1 Corinthians 11:23-26

Years after that first Lord’s Supper, Paul gave instruction to the church at Corinth concerning their preparation for the Lord’s Supper and their behavior when they gathered. They had taken a time of reflection and thanksgiving and turned it into a disruptive potluck dinner where the rich filled their plates first. Paul brought reverence and reality back to the church. When we gather, we do well to follow Paul’s instruction.
