This ordinance is not for everyone. This is only to be taken by those who are believers and accepted Jesus as their ultimate forgiver and leader. To partake in this service in an unworthy state is sin.
1 Corinthians 11:27 (NLT)
27 So 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.
This means that the Lord's supper is a great time for us to conduct a spiritual check of our lives. We must confess and turn from the sins that hold us back and turn to Jesus who said, "Do this to remember me as often as you drink it.''
How do you remember Christ in the Lord's Supper? Is it another ritual or habit, or a time to truly reflect on what Jesus went through for your salvation? It is so much more than a little cracker and a sip of grape juice! I invite you to know the difference.
