Scripture: 1 Corinthians 11:21 (NCV)
In the New Century Version 1 Corinthians 11:21 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 excess to which the Corinthian church was going in the flesh when God wanted to demonstrate to them that He could be too much in the Spirit, they wandered off into having too much in the natural. They went exactly the opposite way that God wanted them to go and were unaware of what He was trying to show them. He was trying to demonstrate He could be too much in wisdom and revelation. He could overwhelm them by showing them the things to come. He could be too much in supply, He could be too much for their enemies. Over and over again, in situation after situation, God was willing to show Himself off as too much so they would marvel and be amazed at His goodness. Does God want to show us His goodness today? I believe He does and we probably need to really know Him. And if we do not see it in our lifetimes, we have to believe it and take it in faith, in order to prepare ourselves and the next generation to represent Him in the days ahead. We have to get to know the God who can be too much. Let’s do it, in Jesus’ name!
