LIFe with God: February 22, 2021

Scripture

1 Corinthians 11:2-34

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

For what did Paul praise the Corinthians? Why did Paul feel it was important to describe the relationship of women to God, Christ, and men? Why do we observe The Lord’s Supper?

Application

Pagan cults in Corinth practiced ecstatic, sensual worship involving long loose hair, nudity, and even ritual sex with prostitutes. How does this shed light on the instructions in this passage regarding women and corporate worship? The Greek word translated “head” in verse 3 means “origin”; what light does that shed on the passage? When I partake of Communion at church, am I focused on the form (the way my church does it), or on the purpose and spiritual meaning?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Lord God, I ask that You would help me to remember those who have instructed me properly in the faith, to hold to the teaching from Your Word, and to have and keep a proper biblical understanding of men and women and our roles in worship and our relationships with each other and with You, even when those views are not popular or “politically correct.” Thank You for the establishment and continued observance of The Lord’s Supper in worship. May I always use that time to focus on Christ and what He has done for me, and examine myself and make sure I am right with You. May it be a time that brings unity to the church, and never division. May we remember Christ and His love for us and His command for us to love each other every time we partake of it. In His precious Name I pray, Amen!

Pray to BLESS!

One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries.

  • Mike Daniels
  • Theresa Daniels
  • Travis Davidson (Andrew, Maddy)
  • Pat Dumandan
  • Ken & Twilla Eden (Mattea, Joseph, Joshua, Sophia, Jonathan)
  • Gary Friend

Missionaries:

  • Tim & Miranda Penn (Samid, Sarah), missionaries to Albania

CLF:

  • That Christian Life Fellowship would be a church that is devoted to the Word of God, and that we would be doers of it and not just hearers; that we would study the Word and so always be prepared to give everyone an answer–in season and out of season–and be approved workers who do not need to be ashamed, able to accurately understand and explain it.
