As I mentioned yesterday, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I went to worship with my church family.
Of course, just as I have done over the past couple of months, I didn't go alone.
Like normal, I had to drive to my daughter B's home, to pick up my granddaughter, A. And later, take her home, again.
A and I began our worship service, just as is done every Lord's Day. Then, the children leave the sanctuary and go with their Sunday school teachers.
I must admit, A enjoys doing this. And, I am so grateful that she does!
Of course, when the children are away from us, we worship, just as we always do.
Yesterday, was a wonderful time of worship, for me. Do you know why?
If you look at the date, you'll know that Sunday, October 4th, was the first SONday of the month.
This meant that we had communion, at the end of our worship service! For this, I praise God!
After all, we are to honour our Lord, Jesus Christ, whenever we eat the bread and drink the wine/juice while taking communion.
The only thing that strikes my heart, is the fact that only those who are worthy, should do this.
Those who are unworthy, should not.
Just as we read, in 1 Corinthians 11:24-27, "And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.
27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord."
Yes, as often as we eat this bread, and drink this cup, we do show the Lord's death till He comes. And, we honour Him.
However, whoever does this unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
This means that an unworthy person who does this, will be guilty. And, will suffer.
How are you worthy to take communion?
Well firstly, you need to be a child of God. You need to have gained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Then, if you have accomplished this, you need to be clean. Meaning, you need to have been cleansed, by confessing any/all sin in your life... to God.
Confessing to a person, is not necessary. The important thing to do, is to confess to God.
My friend, I do this, regularly. Hopefully, you do, also. If not, I pray you will.
This way, I/you/we/anyone can participate in honouring our Lord, Jesus Christ, and join in taking communion, in remembrance of Him. Always.
Thank You, Lord, for providing for us!
Until next time...
