Sermon Discussion Questions: June 4, 2017

Sermon Text: 1 Corinthians 11:17-34

Loving God’s Glory

  • One of the problems with how the Corinthian church celebrated the Lord’s Supper is that they were treating it in a frivolous manner. Why should we approach the Table with both joy and reverence?
  • The phrase in verse 23, “on the night he was betrayed,” does more than simply locate the event in history and time. How might it display the glory of Christ in contrast with Judas’ betrayal?

Loving God’s People

  • How does the context of this passage inform the content of “self-examination” in verse 28?
  • What are some practical ways we can display thoughtfulness and care for one another in the church when we gather for meals, worship services, or the Lord’s Supper?

Loving God’s World

  • How is the celebration of the Lord’s Supper an evangelistic opportunity?
  • Have you ever considered inviting an unbeliever to a service in which we celebrate the Lord’s Supper with the intent of discussing the practice with them afterward? How might something like this be done respectfully and winsomely?
