• “Men think lightly of sin; not only sinners, but the saints do not view it in its proper light. Sin is not a light thing in the sight of God. The Church of God is asleep.” – Mary Winslow

Examining Ourselves by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/20/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Did you ever realize that celebrating communion can encourage us to be holy? I remember getting to church one Sunday and realizing that we were going to have communion. As I took my seat, God brought a situation to my mind. It was a small issue, but I knew that the way I handled it could have offended one of the senior members in our church.

Before I could take communion, I wanted to be sure my conscience was clear. First Corinthians says, “Let a person examine himself” before taking the Lord’s Supper. It provides a regular opportunity to be sure our conscience is clear before God and others.

So I slipped out of my seat and found the man I had offended and made things right. Then I could participate in the Lord’s Supper with no known barriers between me and the Lord or any other believer.

Are there any barriers between you and someone else? You don’t have to wait until you’re in church with communion about to be served. You could make things right today.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “They only did what God permitted them to do, which enabled me always to keep God in sight… When we suffer, we should always remember that God inflicts the blow. Wicked men, it is true, are not infrequently His instruments; and the fact does not diminish, but simply develops their wickedness. But when we are so mentally disposed that we love the strokes we suffer, regarding them as coming from God, and as expressions of what He sees best for us, we are then in the proper state to look forgivingly and kindly upon the subordinate instrument which He permits to smite us.” – Madame Guyon
