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.

Jesus Is the LIGHT: How to Walk in God’s Light (Part 4) – 1 John 2:1-2

Does walking in the light mean that we have the freedom to sin as we please? Not in the least! Sin is a HUGE issue with God, and it is only by Jesus’ ongoing effects of His payment on the cross for us that insure and secure our relationship with God.

Jesus Is the LIGHT: How to Walk in God’s Light (Part 3) – 1 John 1:9-10

Part of walking in the light is having a proper response to SINS – what we do that we shouldn’t do, or what we don’t do that we should. We examine a very often-quoted verse (1 John 1:9) in light of its context, and find out that many have this verse ALL WRONG. The verse does not tell a believer to ask for forgiveness or say that he/she is sorry for his/her sins. It also is not a “get out of sin card” that believers are to be using as the fix-all for personal sins.

Walking in the light allows us to fellowship with God, and cleanses us from all sin. We examine 1 John 1:7-8 and see how God’s plan allows us to overcome our sin nature and walk with Him.

What does the Bible mean when it states that “God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all”? How do we, as Christians that struggle with sin, walk with God? We begin a 4-part look at 1 John 1:5–2:2 that tells us how.

Every believer needs a working knowledge of this truth.
