Everyone loves a good party. We love good food, games, and having fun with friends. But there is also a time to gather with others reverently to worship and participate in the Lord’s Supper.
That might seem foolish to the world. It certainly seemed foolish to the early Christians in the First Century. They turned the Lord’s Supper into a drunken toga party. So, Paul used their foolishness as an opportunity to teach the proper way to celebrate Holy Communion, also known as the Lord’s Supper.
This is a simple, seemingly foolish meal of a cracker and some wine. But in this meal, God is confirming a covenant promise with us, his people. In this meal, we are one with God and one with each other, and he promises to “remember our sins no more” as we follow His wisdom.
Scriptures: 1 Corinthians 11
