I Corinthians 11:28 ” A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup.”

Paul had not been with the Believers of the Church in Corinth for about three years.  But he had gotten wind of the abuses that were happening concerning the Lord’s Supper…or if you will, Holy Communion or the Eucharist.  Here he was instructing them to stop and soberly scrutinize and determine whether they were worthy of taking Communion…before they partook.   When something becomes so ritualistic and automatic, we tend to perform it without thinking…going through the motions without allowing it to impact us.   We are to examine ourselves first, before we participate…for who better to ascertain our own spiritual condition than us?  And don’t worry, what you choose to ignore…the Holy Spirit will be faithful to point it out!
