HE WILL SATISFY US


HE WILL SATISFY US

1 Corinthians 11:27-30 (NKJV) Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30 For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep.

Many of us receive communion once a month, kind of like a tradition.  But looking at these Scriptures that follow the verses that we use for communion, we can see that there is more to it than just receiving a little bread and grape juice.

Here it says, “For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30 For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep.”  So we see that if we do not understand what Jesus did on the cross for us, we can miss out on the benefits of this covenant promise from God our Father.  It even says that many people are sick and die before their time, for not understanding what Jesus did on the cross.

Yes, Jesus took my sins on the cross, and yes, His blood washes me white as snow.  There is no greater gift given to the world then the gift of eternal life, which means that our names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.  But next to receiving salvation, God wants us to have a good long life here on the earth.  It says in Psalm 91:16, “With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation.”

So we see that Jesus came to bring us eternal life, and He also came to give us provision for our life on the earth.  In the next two days, let us look at what the bread, or body of Jesus, did for us, and then let us look at what the grape juice, or His blood, did for us.  After we are done with this, go ahead and receive communion, and remember the great covenant promise God has for you.

CONFESSION:  Jesus died on the cross for me so that I can have all the benefits written in the Bible.  Today, I choose life for myself, and my family.
