For the LORD our God the Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and exult and give Him the glory,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come,
and His bride has made herself ready.
•Jesus calls us to judge ourselves.
When you are invited, go and sit down in the lowest place, so that when he who invited you comes he may say to you, “Friend, go up higher.” Then you will have glory in the presence of those who sit at the table with you. For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers.
1 Peter 4:7
•Jesus disciplines the unworthy.
I will seek what was lost and bring back what was driven away, bind up the broken and strengthen what was sick; but I will destroy the fat and the strong, and feed them in judgment.
Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the LORD in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the LORD.
1 Corinthians 11:27
But when we are judged, we are chastened by the LORD, that we may not be condemned with the world.
1 Corinthians 11:32
•Jesus calls us to peace.
Therefore, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another.
1 Corinthians 11:33
“I will feed My flock, and I will make them lie down,” says the LORD God.
In the multitude of my anxieties within me,
Your comforts delight my soul.
