His Body, His Blood

Updated on December 31, 2010

1Co 11:24  And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
1Co 11:25  After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
1Co 11:26  For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.
1Co 11:27  Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
1Co 11:28  But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
1Co 11:29  For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
1Co 11:30  For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. (KJV)

Most every Christian has taken Communion and have at least a general knowledge of what Communion is all about.  It is the eating of (ingesting) Christ's body and the drinking of Christ's blood.  The eating of His body is acknowledging all that His death has accomplished to keep us from being ravaged by the effects of sin and the curse in this earth.  What does the Bible say that His death has done for us?  We are redeemed from the curse. (Gal. 3:13)  We are made righteous before God. (2 Cor. 5:21) We are now created to be dead to sin and alive to God. (Rom. 6:10) We are healed through His death. (1 Pet. 2:24) We are made prosperous and rich through His death. (2 Cor. 8:9) 
What happens when we fail to discern (being unsure of what His death has provided for us) His body?  We become weak and/or sick, even unto death.  Communion should never be viewed as a tradition, nor should Communion be taken lightly.  Discerning His body is understanding and acknowledging all that His death has provided for us..  healing, wholeness, wealth, goodness, etc.  Discerning His blood is understanding and acknowledging all that His Blood has provided for us .. Forgiveness, escaping Judgement, cleanses us from ALL sin, etc. 
When we examine ourselves, we are to examine ourselves to be sure that we are making a cognizant and conscious effort to remember the new covenant that has been bought with His Blood.  We are to look inside of ourselves, and remember all that He has gone through so that we are free from having to pay the wages of sin.  When receiving Communion, we are to remember that because He suffered we are free from death and hell.  We are free from sickness and disease.  We are free from demonic influences and powers.  We are free to live a prosperous life.  It is finished.  What is finished?  The ravaging effects of the curse and sin and all active evil, on those calling on Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
