When you receive Jesus, be as humble, thankful, prayerful, and respectful as you can possibly be. That is why I receive by the mouth vs in the hand. I’m not worthy to hold Jesus in my hand, to treat him as if he’s just a small snack, just ordinary food. I need to be fed like a child to show humility and respect. When you receive Jesus, ask yourself if you are even willing to receive on the tongue. If not, why? Is there the smallest bit of pride, lack of Faith, or embarrassment?
Lord, please make me worthy for you to enter under my roof. Please say the word so that my soul may be healed.
