Communion - Coming to the Table

Communion - Coming to the Table

Paul’s somber warning to the Corinthian church stands as authoritative for the Church today, charging each and every believer in Christ to approach the Lord’s Table in humble self-examination. The weight of such a charge should be felt each time the believer approaches the ordinance, and yet life’s concerns and busyness often prohibit well-meaning disciples from properly preparing for this sacred rite. Moreover, there is confusion about the nature and content of this self-examination that Paul is commending.
