Understanding the essentials for keeping the Lord’s Passover heals all divisions. First and foremost we must discern the body of Christ—his sacrifice, what he has done for each of us and be reconciled to God the Father and Jesus Christ. We must also discern the body of believers and be reconciled to each member of the body of Christ. It is essential that we discern and judge ourselves by the word of God. We must consider our life and repent so God does not have to step in and judge us. Are you ready to take the Passover without grudge or hard feelings, are you prepared to eat and drink the Lord’s Passover?
