The Lord’s Supper is not a common meal

When the Church at Corinth assembled for worship and to eat the Lord’s Supper, their manner of doing it was not the way the Lord wanted it done, because they treated it like a common meal for filling the hunger and thirst of the body,

“For in eating, each one takes his own supper ahead of others; and one is hungry and another is drunk. What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God and shame those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you in this? I do not praise you” (1 Corinthians 11:21-22).

Do not eat the Lord’s Supper to fill your belly or to quench your thirst, but eat it to remember the body and blood of Jesus Christ our Savior.
