Holding On To Negative Feelings

Whenever we have communion our Pastor says something to the effect that if your heart isn’t in the right place at that moment, if you’re holding onto negative feelings such as anger, jealousy, or resentment, pray about it, fix it, but don’t take communion when you’re wrestling with those feelings.

Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;
