Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) I feel I need to mention what I did, yesterday. Even though I don't always tell you about what I do on our Lord's Day.
As I'm sure you realize, I am no longer a member at any Christian church. So, I don't have anywhere to attend to worship, on a regular basis.
Even so, I've been attending worship services in various locations.
With yesterday being the first SONday of the month, I decided to go and worship with a church group that I knew would be celebrating that day.
After all, not all church groups have communion on the first Sunday of the month. But, I knew this church group did. So, I went there.
Parking wasn't easy, but God provided.
I took my seat, where I have sat on several times in the past.
The worship service was nice. And, of course, I truly enjoyed taking communion, with all the church family who were in attendance, there.
I must admit, there's something that bothers me.
Not just regarding this church group. But, also... most church groups.
There's something that never seems to be said. And, I find it upsetting.
Just as I mentioned a while ago, when I said here on LwL that I saw many people not praying, before taking communion.
Why is it upsetting to me?
In the past, for many years, I had a wonderful pastor. He always made it clear to us that we born again Christians needed to be worthy of taking communion.
Thinking of this, made me think of 1 Corinthians 11:27, "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."
Amen! Anyone who takes communion, eating the bread and drinking the cup of the Lord, who is unworthy, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
Who is unworthy?
Anyone, who has not prayed and confessed any sinfulness to God, is definitely unworthy.
We all need to pray. And, confess anything that was sinful that we did, or had thoughts of.
For confessing makes us worthy, because we become clean, within us.
For this, I am thankful.
I pray that other people will somehow realize that this is necessary to be done. And, I pray that some people who took communion with me, did actually pray and confess any sin of theirs.
For if they do, they will become worthy of taking communion.
And, will be blessed.
So, please do it.
May God bless you.
Until next time...
