For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. – 1 Corinthians 11:29
Many of us have been taught that before we take the communion that we must be worthy. Jesus made us worthy to partake when He died for us on the Cross. The only thing we have to do to be worthy to partake is to accept Christ.
However, if you remember your grammar lessons, you will realize that unworthily is an adverb. An adverb refers to a verb not a subject.
How do we eat and drink unworthily? We do so when we do it out of tradition and ritual, rather than focusing on the meaning behind the cup and bread.
When we focus on the bread, being Jesus’ body, broken and beaten for our healing, when we focus on the wine, being Jesus’ blood, shed for our sins, we are partaking worthily.
And as we do this, we will see amazing results.

Have you received Jesus as your Lord and Saviour? Do you believe Jesus died to pay the price for your sin? That He was raised from the dead? Then just pray aloud, “Lord Jesus, I repent of all my sins. Come into my heart and be my Lord and Saviour.” If you believed in your heart and confessed with your mouth, you are Born-again. Let us know if you prayed this prayer.
