1 Corinthians 11: 23-26, For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 25 In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This does, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.
· Now more than ever it is vital for all believers to commune with God daily. Taking communion once a month corporately is good, but we need to spiritually commune with God.
· Spiritual communion looks like walking and talking with God daily. Constant communication and instructions from the throne are vital to our Christian walk.
· This looks like cutting out distractions of the world and in our personal lives and making time for God. Now more than ever we need to be hearing and seeing in the Spirit and to do this we need to be communing with God.
· Jesus wants us to not only remember what he did on the cross, but he also wants us to experience the Carvery experience in our everyday lives. Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection were not only to restore our relationship with God, but it was done to give us direct access to the throne of grace. God sent his son Jesus Christ to die for us because his original intent, from the beginning of time, was to have a relationship with us.
Reflections on our Spiritual Communion with God
1. What areas of our lives do we need to work on concerning the time we spend with God?
2. What things are competing with our time with God?
3. Communion is a two-way street. What was the last thing God spoke to you? Did He give you any instructions?
4. When was the last time the Holy Spirit convicted you about your behaviors and actions? Did you repent?
5. What are your relationship goals with God?
