Do you take communion seriously?

Many professing Christians do not. Even in the days of the apostles, there were some who approached the Lord’s Supper in an unprepared and unworthy manner. This not only prevented them from enjoying full communion with Christ, but some even became sick and died as a result.

While the Bible clearly states this somber fact, it seems that most Christians have chosen to avoid such uncomfortable thoughts.  Many continue to approach the Lord’s Supper in a casual and even nonchalant manner, rather than with humble hearts and godly fear.

God calls you to take communion seriously:

“Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.  But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup.  For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.” (1 Corinthians 11:27-29)
