1 corinthians 11:17-34

the second message in the “robert terrell winter preaching tour” happens this coming sunday at fellowship baptist church in waupaca. this is our sponsoring church (i.e. the entity that makes it possible for us to be tax-deductible and get insurance) and therefore it would be nice to do a good job. it’s not like i ever really want to bomb in front of a group. after all this is GOD’s word that is being dealt with and therefore it should be life changing anytime we dig into it. still on a personal side i would like to do a really good job when it comes to the church that is sponsoring tapestry (i would hate to leave with them thinking “what type of reject have we sponsored?). since, i desire to do i good job i’ve turned to my second best resource … you (obviously the first is the HOLY SPIRIT and we’ve talked already and continue to).

if any of you are interested in reading the passage that i will be dealing with and then sending me any thoughts you have i will gladly steal all the credit from your great input. 🙂 actually, as i have said before i have always tried to bounce passages and ideas off a group of people i trust. sometimes theirideas are amazing and sometimes just the act of asking someone questions helps me out a ton. i have pam and she is one of the best exegetes i have ever been around but i’m also hoping to expand the group a little. so if anybody is interested the passage is 1 corinthians 11:17-34.i would love to steal … i mean use your thoughts.

a couple of you did this last time and i was very thankful for your thoughts.

  1. Robert, I just read your passage and wanted to give you what was on my mind. Today’s church doesn’t have a communion service that mirrors this text, but I do think there is a parallel for us. People were arriving at the place and time of worship and putting their own interests first. So much to the point that not only was Christ not seen, he was dishonored along with the dishonoring of people who really did have a need. I would imagine that in our way of doing church, we have, maybe even without noticing, elevated our own needs and interests above the glorification of Christ.
