Instructions for Public Worship

2I am so glad that you always keep me in your thoughts, and that you are following the teachings I passed on to you.G1161G1867G5209G80G3754G3415G3450G3956G2532G2722G3862G2531G3860G5213 3But there is one thing I want you to know: The head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.G1161G2309G5209G1492G3754G2776G3956G435G2076G5547G1161G2776G1135G435G1161G2776G5547G2316 4A man dishonors his head if he covers his head while praying or prophesying.G3956G435G4336G2228G4395G2192G2776G2596G2617G846G2776 5But a woman dishonors her head if she prays or prophesies without a covering on her head, for this is the same as shaving her head.G1161G3956G1135G4336G2228G4395G2776G177G2617G1438G2776G1063G2076G2532G1520G846G3587 6Yes, if she refuses to wear a head covering, she should cut off all her hair! But since it is shameful for a woman to have her hair cut or her head shaved, she should wear a covering.G1063G1487G1135G2619G3756G2619G2751G2532G2751G1161G1487G149G1135G2751G2228G3587G2619 7A man should not wear anything on his head when worshiping, for man is made in God's image and reflects God's glory. And woman reflects man's glory.G1063G435G3303G3784G3756G2619G2776G5225G1504G2532G1391G2316G1161G1135G2076G1391G435 8For the first man didn't come from woman, but the first woman came from man.G1063G435G2076G3756G1537G1135G235G1135G1537G435 9And man was not made for woman, but woman was made for man.G1063G2532G3756G2936G435G2936G1223G1135G235G1135G1223G435 10For this reason, and because the angels are watching, a woman should wear a covering on her head to show she is under authority.G5124G1223G3784G1135G2192G1849G1909G2776G1223G32 11But among the Lord's people, women are not independent of men, and men are not independent of women.G4133G3777G435G5565G1135G3777G1135G5565G435G1722G2962 12For although the first woman came from man, every other man was born from a woman, and everything comes from God.G1063G5618G1135G1537G435G3779G435G2532G1223G1135G1161G3956G1537G2316 13Judge for yourselves. Is it right for a woman to pray to God in public without covering her head?G2919G1722G5213G846G2076G4241G1135G4336G2316G177 14Isn't it obvious that it's disgraceful for a man to have long hair?G2228G3761G5449G846G1321G5209G3754G1437G3303G435G2863G2076G819G846 15And isn't long hair a woman's pride and joy? For it has been given to her as a covering.G1161G1437G1135G2863G2076G1391G846G3754G2864G1325G846G473G4018 16But if anyone wants to argue about this, I simply say that we have no other custom than this, and neither do God's other churches.G1161G1536G1380G1511G5380G2249G2192G3756G5108G4914G3761G1577G2316

Order at the Lord’s Supper

17But in the following instructions, I cannot praise you. For it sounds as if more harm than good is done when you meet together.G1161G5124G3853G1867G3756G3754G4905G3756G1519G2909G235G1519G2276 18First, I hear that there are divisions among you when you meet as a church, and to some extent I believe it.G1063G3303G4412G5216G4905G1722G1577G191G5225G4978G1722G5213G2532G3313G4100G5100 19But, of course, there must be divisions among you so that you who have God's approval will be recognized!G1063G1163G1511G2532G139G1722G5213G2443G1384G1096G5318G1722G5213 20When you meet together, you are not really interested in the Lord's Supper.G5216G4905G3767G1909G846G2076G3756G5315G2960G1173 21For some of you hurry to eat your own meal without sharing with others. As a result, some go hungry while others get drunk.G1063G1722G5315G1538G4301G2398G1173G2532G3739G3303G3983G1161G3739G3184 22What? Don't you have your own homes for eating and drinking? Or do you really want to disgrace God's church and shame the poor? What am I supposed to say? Do you want me to praise you? Well, I certainly will not praise you for this!G1063G2192G3378G3614G2068G2532G4095G1519G2228G2706G1577G2316G2532G2617G2192G3361G5101G2036G5213G1867G5209G1722G5129G1867G3756 23For I pass on to you what I received from the Lord himself. On the night when he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some breadG1063G1473G3880G575G2962G3739G2532G3860G5213G3754G2962G2424G3571G1722G3739G3860G2983G740 24and 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."G2532G2168G2806G2532G2036G2983G5315G5124G2076G3450G4983G3588G2806G5228G5216G5124G4160G1519G364G1699 25In 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."G5615G2532G4221G3326G1172G3004G5124G4221G2076G2537G1242G1722G1699G129G5124G4160G3740G302G4095G1519G364G1699 26For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are announcing the Lord's death until he comes again.G1063G302G3740G2068G5126G740G2532G4095G5124G4221G2605G2962G2288G891G302G3739G2064 27So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord.G5620G3739G302G2068G5126G740G2228G4095G4221G2962G371G2071G1777G4983G2532G129G2962 28That is why you should examine yourself before eating the bread and drinking the cup.G1161G1381G444G1381G1438G2532G3779G2068G1537G740G2532G4095G1537G4221 29For if you eat the bread or drink the cup without honoring the body of Christ, you are eating and drinking God's judgment upon yourself.G1063G2068G2532G4095G371G2068G2532G4095G2917G1438G3361G1252G2962G4983 30That is why many of you are weak and sick and some have even died.G1223G5124G1223G4183G772G2532G732G1722G5213G2532G2425G2837 31But if we would examine ourselves, we would not be judged by God in this way.G1063G1487G1252G1438G302G3756G2919 32Yet when we are judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be condemned along with the world.G1161G2919G3811G5259G2962G3363G2632G3363G2632G4862G2889 33So, my dear brothers and sisters, when you gather for the Lord's Supper, wait for each other.G5620G3450G80G4905G1519G5315G1551G240 34If you are really hungry, eat at home so you won't bring judgment upon yourselves when you meet together. I'll give you instructions about the other matters after I arrive.G1161G1536G3983G2068G1722G3624G3363G4905G3363G4905G1519G2917G1161G3062G1299G5613G302G2064
