5 “Looks” of Communion (1 Corinthians 11:17-34)
Communion (sometimes called “The Lord’s Table”) is more than a tack-on at the end of a service. Communion, as Jesus instituted, is intended to remind us regularly of several truths, and to have us measure ourselves by these truths. In this study, we will highlight 5 focuses or “looks” that Jesus intended for us to take each time we participate in communion. With these 5 looks, we offer 10 questions to ask oneself to help prompt us as we examine these focuses.

The Resurrection Makes All the Difference (1 Cor 15:1-34)

Monday, April 21st, 2014

Believe it or reject it: Jesus rose from the dead or He did not. If He did not, then party hardy, because there is nothing after this life. However, if He DID rise again (and there’s no evidence to the contrary), then that changes EVERYTHING: Everyone will be judged. Your only hope is Jesus death and resurrection. If you are a believer, you need to make up your mind and be ALL IN or ALL OUT. You can’t live in a world where you define Jesus as you want. He is the Savior or He is not.

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Do you ever wonder if serving God makes any difference? When you look at the results of your sometimes exhausting efforts, you see nothing come of them? God addresses this very directly in 1 Corinthians 15:58: “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”

We take some time in this message to explain this verse in detail, and to encourage you that your works DO make a difference.

Learn From Their [Lousy] Examples (1 Corinthians 10:1-12)

Monday, April 30th, 2012

We back up and look at the context of 1 Corinthians 10:13. We see that the Israelites had five amazing supernatural experiences in common, and yet “with most of them God was not well-pleased.”

What did they do wrong? God gives us five areas in which they sinned, and by which we can learn from their failures.
