Examine Yourself Slides, 2/5/12

  1. 1. For I received from the Lord what I also delivered toyou, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he wasbetrayed took bread, and when he had giventhanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my bodywhich is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” Inthe same way also he took the cup, after supper,saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood.Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance ofme.” For as often as you eat this bread and drinkthe cup, you proclaim the Lords death until hecomes.
  2. 2. Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks thecup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will beguilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord.Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat ofthe bread and drink of the cup. For anyone whoeats and drinks without discerning the body eatsand drinks judgment on himself. That is why manyof you are weak and ill, and some have died. But ifwe judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged.But when we are judged by the Lord, we aredisciplined so that we may not be condemned alongwith the world.
  3. 3. So then, my brothers, when you come togetherto eat, wait for one another— if anyone ishungry, let him eat at home—so that when youcome together it will not be for judgment. Aboutthe other things I will give directions when Icome. 1 Corinthians 11:23-34 (ESV)
