Sincere Communion Wanted

1 Corinthians 11:29
"For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body."

The sober warnings against hypocrisy in Matthew 23 by Jesus have a parallel here at the Lord’s Table. Paul says that when we remember Christ’s death in Communion by disregarding the body of believers He died for, we are liable to judgment. This is hypocrisy. Instead, partake worthily in sincerity. Notice that this goes beyond your own thoughts and desires, to your actions toward others. Consider whether your love for the Lord Jesus is genuine. Also consider whether that’s becoming obvious in how you treat each other.
