  We Are One In The Spirit El Shaddai

  Day By Day

    Luke 22:7-38, 1 Corinthians 11:17-34

    Luke 22:7-38

    The Last Supper

       7 Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed.

       8 Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, "Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover."

       9 "Where do you want us to prepare for it?" they asked.

      10 He replied, "As you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you.  Follow him to the house that he enters,

      11 and say to the owner of the house, 'The Teacher asks:  Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?'

      12 He will show you a large room upstairs, all furnished.  Make preparations there."

      13 They left and found things just as Jesus had told them.  So they prepared the Passover.

      14 When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table.

      15 And he said to them, "I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.

      16 For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God."

      17 After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, "Take this and divide it among you.

      18 For I tell you I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes."

      19 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me."

      20 In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.

      21 But the hand of him who is going to betray me is with mine on the table.

      22 The Son of Man will go as it has been decreed. But woe to that man who betrays him!"

      23 They began to question among themselves which of them it might be who would do this.

      24 A dispute also arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest.

      25 Jesus said to them, "The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors.

      26 But you are not to be like that.  Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves.

      27 For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves?  Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.

      28 You are those who have stood by me in my trials.

      29 And I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me,

      30 so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

      31 "Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat.

      32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail.  And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers."

      33 But he replied, "Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death."

      34 Jesus answered, "I tell you, Peter, before the rooster crows today, you will deny three times that you know me."

      35 Then Jesus asked them, "When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?"
    "Nothing," they answered.

      36 He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.

      37 It is written: 'And he was numbered with the transgressors'; and I tell you that this must be fulfilled in me.  Yes, what is written about me is reaching its fulfillment."

      38 The disciples said, "See, Lord, here are two swords."
    "That is enough," he replied.

    1 Corinthians 11:17-34

    Correcting an Abuse of the Lord's Supper

      17 In the following directives I have no praise for you, for your meetings do more harm than good.

      18 In the first place, I hear that when you come together as a church, there are divisions among you, and to some extent I believe it.

      19 No doubt there have to be differences among you to show which of you have God's approval.

      20 So then, when you come together, it is not the Lord's Supper you eat,

      21 for when you are eating, some of you go ahead with your own private suppers.  As a result, one person remains hungry and another gets drunk.

      22 Don't you have homes to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God by humiliating those who have nothing? What shall I say to you?  Shall I praise you? Certainly not in this matter!

      23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you:  The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread,

      24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me."

      25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me."

      26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.

      27 So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord.

      28 Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink of the cup.

      29 For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves.

      30 That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep.

      31 But if we were more discerning with regard to ourselves, we would not come under such judgment.

      32 Nevertheless, when we are judged in this way by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be finally condemned with the world.

      33 So then, my brothers and sisters, when you gather to eat, you should all eat together.

      34 Those who are hungry should eat something at home, so that when you meet together it may not result in judgment.
    And when I come I will give further directions.
