For many years, I did not understand the importance or the significance of what the Bible teaches concerning the Lord’s Supper or what many Christians call Holy Communion.
Growing up in my local church, the Lord’s Supper was something that we experienced once every three months. As a usual practice, we waited until the church service was just about to end. At that point, the elements, that consisted of a wafer and a small plastic cup of grape juice, were distributed to everyone in the congregation. A few bible verses were read, the elements were received, a song was sung, and then we were dismissed from the church service.
Unfortunately, many Christians have a similar experience. Like me, there is a lack of understanding of the power that is available in this beautiful ordinance. That lack of knowledge has kept many believers from receiving the spiritual and physical blessings that are available as a result of Jesus’ sacrifice.
This audio teaching reveals the true meaning of Communion. Through the element of the bread, which represents the body of Jesus that was broken for us, we can receive physical healing and strength for our bodies.
As you listen to this audio teaching, let me encourage you to follow along in your Bible. Mark the scriptures that are read. Take time to meditate on these verses so that the spiritual reality of this biblical truth becomes real to you.
The next time that you receive Communion, let these spiritual truths remind you of what Jesus’ sacrifice means and, by faith, receive health and healing for your physical body.
