Random Thoughts

"On the night when he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread and gave thanks to God for it. Then he broke it in pieces and said, 'This is my body, which is given for you. Do this to remember me.' In the same way, he took the cup of wine after supper, saying, 'This cup is the new covenant between God and his people - an agreement confirmed with my blood. Do this to remember me as often as you drink it.' For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are announcing the Lord's death until he comes again." 1 Corinthians 11:23-26

The Lord's supper. God is both the host and the sacrifice.

"A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other." 1 Corinthians 12:7

The gift is given for the good of the church, not necessarily the good of the individual.

The Spirit could be removed from many churches these days and nothing would be different.

Although my random thoughts tonight are scattered, slow and sleepy, their pupose is sure.

Well, you may be slow and sleepy, but girl, that's a thought...

The Spirit being removed from many a church and nothing being different. Why? Because we aren't "activating" his presence... his gifts, that more often than not, are for the edification of the body, not edification of self. Although, we are blessed when we're in full activation mode, are we not?

Love you. These are some really profound thoughts in very few words. Wish my words could get to the point more quickly!
