How Healing Comes – Avenue #10

The Apostle Paul describes the Last Supper in 1 Corinthians 11:23,

23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

Notice that both the Blood and the Body of Jesus were offered for us. We know that the Blood of Jesus was shed for the remission of our sins and reconciliation with God. But how about His Body? Interestingly, Jesus held the bread up as a representation of His Body, saying,

“This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.”

Thus, one avenue to divine healing can be found through taking communion. Remember the Syrophoenician woman who came to Jesus for the healing of her demon-possessed daughter? Jesus called this healing/ deliverance “the children’s bread”;

27“First let the children eat all they want,” he told her, “for it is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to their dogs.”

Healing here is described here as bread-the children’s bread. This means your bread since Jesus has broken down the middle wall of partition and made you a child of God by His Blood. So, are you sick? Take communion, with the symbols of the Body and Blood of Jesus. As you do, alone in your kitchen or in a packed church meeting; thank Him and praise Him for it- His Body, given for you – the children’s bread of healing. Let us know if communion has featured in your healing.
