WORD FOR TODAY. PARTAKING OF JESUS
1 Corinthians 10:16 “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?”
We are taught that each time we take communion, we are to remember the great sacrifice that Jesus made for each of us, when he gave his body on the cross, and shed His blood for us. We know that the fruit of the vine that we drink at communion is symbolic of the shed blood of Jesus, and the unleavened bread that we eat is symbolic of His sinless body. Look, with me, at the following Scriptures which Jesus spoke Himself about these elements. John 6:54 “Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.” John 6:55 “For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.” John 6:56 “He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.” We are actually in Jesus and He is in us, when we take communion remembering what He did for us. He has brought us life. He is life, and when we partake of Him, we have partaken of life. He is our life.
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!!
