When You Come Together (1 Corinthians 11:17-34) - 7/17/22


  • Paul continues the discussion of “orderly worship”

  • vv. 17-34 he is teaching on the Lord’s Supper

  • They were coming together to observe the Lord’s Supper

  • They were coming together… but not for the right reasons.

  • January 31, 2022 Message on this text

  • We need to learn how important it is WHY we come together.

Come together for the better of others – vv. 18-22

because when you come together it is not for the better but for the worse

  • Does more harm than good

  • When we gather we should build one another up

  • Church is not just about us… it is about others also

  • We have turned church attendance about us

Paul knew the church was divided. (not together)

  • They were thinking about themselves

  • Individuals or united?

Eph 4:1-6 – We need to be unified

  • In our calling

  • In our relationships

  • In the Gospel

    • Spirit

    • Son

    • Father

Ephesians 4:1–6 - [1] I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, [2] with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, [3] eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. [4] There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call—[5] one Lord, one faith, one baptism, [6] one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. (ESV)

Remember… We call it CORPORATE WORSHIP

  • unified bodies of individuals

Come together for the sake of the Gospel – vv. 23-26

The Body

  • The sacrifice paid for us

The Blood

  • The forgiveness of our sin

Come together for the good of your heart – vv. 27-34

Eats and Drinks in an unworthy manner

  • Unworthy when we come together

  • We come to remember His sacrifice, yet we are not willing to do the same

  • Hypocritical worship

    • Our attitude

    • Our actions

Examine yourself

  • Look within (our heart)

  • Our assurance

  • Our sanctification


  • Gets us back to where we need to be

  • Our attitude and action

  • Consider it Divine Mercy
