There Is Healing In Communion
"For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes."
(1 Corinthians 11:26, ESV)
Eating the bread and drinking the cup is a point of remembrance of what Jesus has done for us. It is both a celebration and a declaration. Jesus single-handedly defeated death, hell, and the grave! A cause for celebration. Jesus generously provides for all—salvation, healing, deliverance, and hope! A reason for declaration!
The point of the Lord's table is to proclaim salvation through Christ's death. The visual is His body given; the bread. And His blood shed; the cup. Our salvation and healing are only through His death. At Calvary, He became sin, sickness (limited death), and death. The resurrection declares His life! Sin could not overpower the life of God in Christ Jesus, His Son.
Every time we receive communion, we remember His body given and His blood shed, proclaiming His death. Jesus single-handedly defeated death, hell, and the grave! We celebrate! Jesus generously provides for all—salvation, healing, deliverance, and hope! We proclaim!
As you receive communion today, bring your pain (no matter how great or small), sickness, disease, etc. Declare with Peter, "By his wounds, you have been healed." (1 Peter 2:24 ESV) Say it out loud. Say what God has said! It is your confession of faith. Receive what the Father has provided for you through the sacrifice of His Son.
