The Holy Communion, known also as the Lord’s Supper, represents the greatest expression of God’s love for His people. Two items are used in the Holy Communion—the bread which represents Jesus’ body that was scourged and broken before and during His crucifixion, and the cup which represents His shed blood.
Dr. Patrick Molotsi
1 Corinthians 11: 27-31 “So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup. For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves. That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep. But if we were more discerning with regard to ourselves, we would not come under such judgment”.
At the cross, God also took all our sicknesses and diseases and put them on Jesus’ originally perfect and healthy body, so that we can walk in divine health. That is why the Bible says by His stripes, we are healed (Isaiah 53:5, 1 Peter 2:24).
As we are heading to the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ, today we will be partaking on the Holy Communion.
- The bible says examine yourselves if there is anything that you need to repent on, do it now. Otherwise, if you don’t and continue to partake on the Holy Communion, you will be bringing judgment on yourself.
- He took sickness and pain for us and carried it by Himself. We need to confess healing and positive things upon our lives. We are not defeated by the problems we have in life, but we are defeated by what we say with our mouths. There is power in our confession!
- The cup symbolizes the blood of Jesus that washed our sins, it did not cover our sins but completely removed our sins.
Lord Jesus, thank You for Your precious blood. Your sin-free, disease-free, poverty-free life is in Your blood. And Your shed blood has removed every sin from my life. Through Your blood, I am forgiven of all my sins—past, present and future—and made completely righteous. Today, I celebrate and partake of the inheritance of the righteous, which is preservation, healing, wholeness, and provision. Thank You, Lord Jesus, for loving me. Amen.
