It is required of them that would worthily partake of the Lord's Supper, that they examine themselves of their knowledge to
discern the Lord's body,1
of their faith to feed upon him,2
of their repentance,3
and new obedience;5
lest, coming unworthily, they eat and drink judgment to themselves.6
1 Corinthians 11:28-29.
But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh
unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have
no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat
indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and
they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son , and shall be in bitterness for
him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
1 John 4:19.
We love him, because he first loved us. Galatians 5:6. For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor
uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father,
even so we also should walk in newness of life.
1 Corinthians 11:27.
Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and
blood of the Lord.
