Text: John 6:53-58
“For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.”
It was reported that “the real change in Smith Wigglesworth did not come until he started getting up every day at 4 a.m. to take Communion. Just like the clock works, he would begin each day by remembering his covenant with the Almighty God by taking the bread and the cup. Every day he lived under the inﬂuence of that covenant. And every day he became more and more bold—until ﬁnally, he became one of the boldest men of God in history”. Smith, who was called the apostle of faith lived strong throughout his life and his ministry was full of signs and wonders.
The Communion is one of the greatest mysteries of the Christian life which some have missed out. It is a mystery that makes the Christian life a wonder to the world. It is a means of grace to partake in the life and health of our Lord Jesus.
Jesus compared it to the manna that was taken by the Israelites in the wilderness. The manna was the angel’s food which they ate and it made them a wonder to their world. Throughout the forty years of their wandering, they experienced supernatural health. None was weak or feeble (Psa 105:37). Even Joshua at 85 years was still strong enough to engage in warfare! (Josh 14:10-11). Moses, at 120 years, could still read without glasses and his skin did not wrinkle! (Deut 34:7). If that manna which they ate gave them such vitality and health, how much more will that which is given by the source of life Himself give us something better! Jesus said, “For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink.” (John 6:55 NLT).
As you partake of the communion in faith, I see God rejuvenating your health, supernaturally renewing your strength and your covenant of longevity in Jesus name.
1. Father, thank You for loving me and allowing Jesus to be bruised and broken for me.
2. Father, thank You for giving me vitality, health and wholeness throughout this year in Jesus name.
1. I partake of the communion not as a ritual but as a means of grace to supernaturally service my body.
2. The bread is the true food and the wine is the real drink, so I partake of them often and not occasionally.
