In this second half of 1 Corinthians 11, Paul is specifically talking about the Lord’s Supper. However, what Paul is writing about also has a bigger perspective that applies outside of the Lord’s Supper as well…a way of life & being.
In participating in the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper, we are to remember Jesus’ life & teaching, His resurrection & the hope it brings, His purpose in this world, & everything about Him – Love, forgiveness, purpose, hope, presence, power…
If this is true, we are also to apply all that we remember of Him in our daily life and how we interact with each other. We are reminded to focus on others, not ourselves. To come together despite our differences in opinions & perspectives. To place Jesus, & His mission & purpose, above everything else & then come together to serve others.
We are to set aside ME, & choose WE. Choose TOGETHER. Choose UNITY!
