6) What was He asking Christians to do?

7) Why must Christians remember Jesus' death, and what effect should this have on their lives?

8) Read again 1 Corinthians 11:27-32. Why is communion such a serious occasion?

9) How should Christians prepare before they take communion?

10) How do they judge themselves?

11) What is God's promise to people who confess their evil deeds to Him?

12) How can people be sure that God has forgiven them?
