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.
