Holy Communion

Sunday December 24, 2006

I Cor. 11:23-33; Paul wasn’t at the Passover meal with the other disciples, but he still said that he received the directive for communion from the Lord, because it was given to him by divine revelation. Communion is very special, holy, miraculous, beautiful. Even though Jesus fully knew the meaning of what He was doing at the Lord’s Supper and the disciples didn’t, He gave thanks to God that He could offer Himself. The blood is for the forgiveness for the remission of sins. The breaking of the bread represents the stripes on His body for our bodies’ healing. Weakness, sickness, and premature death may be caused by not discerning the Lord’s body. Examine your heart making sure there is no unrepented sin in your life and that you are rightly discern the Lord’s body.
