Living a Post-Christian Society

August 31, 2014



1 Corinthians 10:16-22


  • Participate with God and I’ll know His strength and blessing.


1. Live life associated with the blood of Christ.

When we bless the cup at the Lord’s Table, aren’t we sharing in the blood of Christ? 1 Cor. 10:16a (NLT)


But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. 1 John 1:7


But now you have been united with Christ Jesus. Once you were far away from God, but now you have been brought near to him through the blood of Christ. Eph. 2:13 (NLT)


2. Live life associated with the body of Christ.

And when we break the bread, aren’t we sharing in the body of Christ? 1 Cor. 10:16b (NLT)


And though we are many, we all eat from one loaf of bread, showing that we are one body. 1 Cor. 10:17 (NLT)


3. Live to give my life for Christ.

Think about the Israelites: Do not those who eat the sacrifices share in the altar? 1 Cor. 10:18 (NCV)


“If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me. Luke 9:23 (NLT)

4. Make choices which don’t support the demon team.

The sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons. 1 Cor. 10:20


2 Cor. 11:14


5. I can only serve one.

You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons. Are we trying to arouse the Lord’s jealousy? Are we stronger than he? 1 Cor. 10:21-22


Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” Matt. 11:28-30 (NLT)
