I always remind everyone prior to partaking that our worth is not found in our own righteousness, but in the righteousness of Christ. He alone can make us worthy. This does not mean that we shouldn’t prepare through confession and repentance as well as examining our personal relationships (Mt. 5:23-24), but we must always remember that ours is an alien rather than intrinsic righteousness.
