Communion Nov 17
Paul is asserting in plain language that believers who violate the unity of the church may suffer temporal physical consequences, even death (cf. 3:17). This is directly connected to a lack of respect for the body of Christ, the church, the people of God
At the Lord’s Supper, we take three “looks”: we look within and confess our sins; we look back and remember Calvary; and we look ahead and eagerly anticipate His return. The principle is clear: if we do not judge our sins, God will have to judge us.
