The cause of lost fellowship with God is disobedience. God loves us. We are his children
and he desires to be in fellowship with us. Therefore, the believer who continues in sin and does not take
the necessary steps to get back into fellowship with God will experience his chastening. This is not a
punishment for our sins, but divine discipline designed to bring us back into line.

Many in Corinth were partaking of the Lord’s supper “unworthily.” Every Christian is
unworthy before God (Rev. 4:11-5:5) in the sense of imperfection, but known, unconfessed sin is what is
in view in this passage. To “examine” one’s self (I Cor. 11:28) and yet still refuse to deal with the sins in
one’s life is to invite God’s judgment of physical damnation. The way to avoid God’s discipline in this life
is to “judge ourselves” so that we will not be “judged” by God (I Cor. 11:31).
