Good Morning ,may this day be filled with God’s overflowing blessings where you are able to drink from the saucer not only the cup
God will cause his blessings to chase you down and overcome you.
If you’re reading this He has already chased you down and overtook you with life,many did n0t have the privilege this morning. yet I, in some way though I’m enjoying each day He gives me, ( I’m not taking anything or anyone for granted after my suicide attempt in August past ) I find myself a bit envious of those who are standing in His presence in heaven,for aren’t we just sojourners here? Is not heaven our final destination ? If not may I introduce you to Jesus,the fleshly self of God born of a virgin who was born to be the only sacrifice or atonement of our sins. He died on the cross at calvary,placed in a tomb to rise from the dead to return to heaven leaving us the Holy Spirit as our comforter until our journey home to heaven. For He sacrificed His life so we would never be separated from Him, but to have communion with Him in body and spirit
The Lords supper where they drank wine which represents His blood and broke bread which represents His body
Jesus died yet rose from the tomb after three days
Praise and worship
Praise Him for all He did and continues doing for you and I.
The word of God says in the book Mathew about communion with wine and bread here He,Jesus instructs us saying to do this often in remembrance of me.
The significance of taking the Holy Communion
the last supper in
Mathew 26:17-29, while Jesus was reclining at the table with his twelve disciples, he told them that “Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me.”Each one declining that it wouldn’t be them, Jesus replied, “The one who has dipped his hand into the
bowl with me will betray me.
The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.”
Mathew 6:26-28, tells us that
while they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.”Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
According to the bible the written word of God, Christians, partake of Holy Communion in remembrance of the body and blood of Jesus that was broken and poured at the cross.
Taking Holy Communion does not only remind us of his suffering but also shows us the amount of love Jesus had for us.
However to be able to share the blood and body of Jesus Christ, one must be born again. In other words must have gone through a self-examination, repentance, and confession.
Jesus sacrificed his life for us so that we could have eternal life. Therefore, as Christians take Holy Communion, they proclaim the eternal life in heaven that Jesus Christ prepared for us to enjoy in the life after through his death and resurrection.
Believers also celebrate as they are reminded that his resurrection led us in triumphant life and glory as well as the depth to which Jesus descended on earth to suffer as a sinner for our sins though He was sinless.
The Holy Communion also reminds us of the width of his arms spread on the cross to bring all humankind into his embrace.
As we partake, we joyfully proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes again.
In John 6:53-54
Jesus tells us that unless one eats his body and drink his blood, we have no life.“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood,
you have no life in you.”
He adds in John 6:54-56
that his body is food and his blood, a drink. Whoever ate his body and drunk his blood abides in him and he will do so with us too.“Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him.”
By receiving the spiritual flesh and blood, Christ lives in us and us in him. We also learn that we must take the Holy Communion since only with the life of Christ in us, we have eternal life and will resurrect on the last day.
Scriptures teach us that through Holy Communion, we also connect with Jesus Christ not only in body but in spirit also.
The word of God guides us through this journey on earth
Communion with God
The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?
The Lord’s Supper, or “Communion,” is a special time for believers to remember the great sacrifice Jesus made for us on the cross. The wine represents his shed blood and the bread his broken body. To approach such a solemn ceremony with a flippant attitude is to disrespect Christ and his sacrifice for sin.
When I take communion with Your people at church or at home, Lord, let me examine myself and ensure that I drink and eat respectfully and without unconfessed sin in my life. But let me have communion with You at all times, not only during the Lord’s Supper or at church. May I have fellowship with You and Your Son Jesus and with all of Your children every day.
