Work as Worship: Week 7, May 31, 2015

Many have been the inventions that were meant for good but utilized for evil:

 

·         Alfred Nobel created dynamite for constructive purposes, but it was used for explosives and ammunition in war and millions perished.

·         Google Earth can help us gain perspective, map journeys, and a thousand other good purposes.  At the same time, terrorists can and have used it to plot and carry out sinister strategies.

·         The 3-D printer is a new invention that can print out an inexpensive new hand for an amputee or a new part for a broken engine.  Criminals have wasted no time in discovering that functioning guns can be printed and exist on no registry.

 

Amazing that the same thing can be used for better or worse.  Even a church gathering.  Even the Lord’s Supper.  Paul said it this way, “But in the following instructions I do not commend you, because when you come together it is not for the better but for the worse” (I Cor. 11:17).  The Corinthians were using God’s good gift in a way that highlighted divisions in the church and selfishness in the members.  The end result was that their observance did not make their fellowship better, but worse!  What a word for us!

 

This Sunday we will celebrate the Lord’s Supper.  Leading up to it we will prepare our hearts by hearing afresh the instructions God gave us in 1 Corinthians 11 regarding the Lord’s Supper.  It is meant for our good.  God forbid that we conduct it in a way that makes things worse!  

 

Pray that God will move in a great way among us.  I believe that He will.
