Passage: 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
Every nation, culture, sub-culture, family, and individual has at least one story they rehearse. These stories that are rehearsed over and over again shape us. Israel rehearsed the story of the Exodus every year when they ate the Passover meal. As followers of Jesus, we rehearse the story of his death ever week. Rehearsing this story with our church family shapes us into the people God wants us to be.
G.K. Chesterton observed, “If you leave a white fence post alone it will soon be a black post. If you particularly want it to be white you must be always painting it again.” The church must always be committed to restoration, reminding ourselves of the fundamentals and what it looks like to be a biblical church.
