DECLARING YOUR LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS!
For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes (1 Corinthians 11:26).
The Holy Communion is a symbol of Jesus Christ’s victory over the powers of death and Satan in life. When a Christian participates in the Holy Communion, directly or indirectly he is declaring his life in Jesus Christ. The mystery behind it does not lie in the physical but in the spiritual connotation in life. The Bible says in the opening text that as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God wants him to constantly declare his life in Christ Jesus. Hence, the total mystery of God’s salvation is found in the divine communion of Jesus Christ’s life forever.
The Holy Communion is one of the best ways through which a Christian declares his life in Jesus Christ. That is the reason why every Christian should learn to often participate in it. The often a Christian does, the more he declares his life in Jesus Christ. That is why the Bible says in 1 John 5:11, “And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.” Therefore, whenever a Christian partakes in the Holy Communion, directly or indirectly he is partaking in the eternal life of God through His Son. The eternal life of God is found in the person of Jesus Christ in life. It is the mystery of the communion that actually unveils the divine life of God in a Christian’s life forever.
When a Christian learns to often participate in the Holy Communion, he quickens his spirit to be alive with Christ Jesus in the Holy Ghost. That is the reason why the Bible says in Romans 8:10, “And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.” In fact, the life of a Christian is found in the Spirit of God through righteousness of Jesus Christ in life. By constantly declaring your life through the Holy Communion does not only quicken your spirit but also imputing Jesus Christ’s righteousness in your life. The righteousness of Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection is mysteriously enveloped in the Holy Communion of life forever.
Daily Tip: A Christian who often participates in the Holy Communion is always declaring his life in Christ Jesus. Therefore, every Christian should learn to often participate in the communion service of life forever. Shalom!
