Today I want to share with you the importance of partaking of communion. I highly encourage you to make it a part of your week, if not your day.

I think we can all agree there is a great deal of activity going on in the Spirit this year. This morning, as I prepared my communion elements, I was reminded of the power of communion. The love feast, as it is called in the book of Revelations. It is a time when we remember what Jesus did at the cross. When we are reminded that He said, “It is finished.”

Partaking of communion is one of the tools God has given us against sickness and disease. But not only that – it is also a powerful tool against plans of the enemy.

When we take communion, we align ourselves with the body and blood of Jesus. In communion, we remember the fullness of what Jesus did at the cross. We receive that fullness into every area of our life.

Most people do not make partaking of communion in the privacy of their home a priority. However, in the season we are in, I believe it would be wisdom to make it a part of your life – on a regular basis. Jesus said, “Do this in remembrance of Me” in 1 Cor. 11:24.

The word communion means partnership, participation, intercourse, and fellowship. From the definition alone, we see the depth of intimacy in communion. It is a time when we become ONE with Jesus and what He did at the cross. It is also called the Cup of Blessing, which means the seal of the covenant. We understand how a seal works. It covers and protects what is inside. It lets nothing of the outside, in.

1 Corinthians 10:16 says, “The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, it is not the communion of the body of Christ?”

What this scripture is saying is when we drink of the communion cup, whether you use grape juice or wine, you are drinking, becoming one with, fellowshipping with and becoming a partner with the blood of Christ and all it purchased at the cross.

When we eat the bread, we are becoming one with, fellowshipping with and becoming a partner with the body of Christ. We are partnering with the healing and wholeness He purchased for us. In communion we partner with prosperity, healing, wholeness, soundness of mind and every other thing Jesus took back at the cross. We partner with ultimate victory! That is good news!

And we remember Him. The One who purchased victory for us. We honor Him in communion. It’s a time when all He completed on that day is once again sealed for us. The seal is applied as we partake of communion.

For me personally, communion has often broken the hold of the enemy in my life when it seemed nothing else was working, especially where healing is concerned. However, I do not believe healing is why God led me to communion this morning. I believe it has more to do with the season we are in, the attacks the enemy would like to release and the promises that God will manifest.

I believe God wants us to remember what was really accomplished at the cross. I believe He wants us to recall the words of Jesus, “It is finished.”

Communion is powerful. It brings us into the presence of God, of Jesus and Holy Spirit. We become one with Him as we fellowship with Him and remember what He purchased for us. We seal those blood bought blessings as we drink of the cup of communion.

Take some time out this week for communion, you, and Jesus in oneness. There’s nothing else like it. And remember, it is not only for healing but for everything Jesus accomplished at the cross. Furthermore, pray about making it a part of your personal life – in the privacy of your home – it is life changing.
