Scripture: 1 Corinthians 9:11 NCV
In 1 Corinthians 9:11 the New Century Version says, “This is because when you eat, each person eats without waiting for the others. Some people do not get enough to eat, while others have too much to drink.” This is a rebuke concerning communion. It shows us the excesses of the Corinthian church. The church at Corinth was going to excess in the flesh. What God wanted to demonstrate to them was that He could be too much in the Spirit but they wandered off into partaking of too much in the natural. They went exactly the opposite way that God wanted them to go. He was trying to show them that He could be too much in revelation. He could overwhelm them by showing them things to come. He could be too much in supply as well as be too much to their enemies. Over and over again in situation after situation God was willing to show Himself as the God of too much so that they would marvel and be amazed at His goodness! Does God want to show us His goodness today? I believe He does. We probably need to see it to really know Him and to prepare to represent Him in the days ahead. We need to get to know the God Who can be too much!
