discerning the Lord's body

1 Corinthians 11


For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.

The word, discern in this verse means to separate or make a difference between things. We should realize the difference between just eating, like we do every day at home, and remembrance of the Lord's body.

Next time we get together for the Lord's remembrance, and eat the bread, let's make sure that we aren't just eating it, but that we stop and consider the Lord.
