When we understand and partake of the Holy Communion, in a posture of faith, we can experience the transformative power of Christ’s work in our lives, both spiritually and physically.
In Psalms 107:20, the bible tells us that “His Word” which was sent to us, healed and delivered us from all sickness and disease. The first chapter of the book of John does well to reveal Jesus to us as the Word.
A preacher once said, “If the bread is Jesus’ body, then partaking of it, means partaking of the body of a man who exuberated resurrection life and wellness.” I find this statement very profound. Jesus never fell sick. His body was so strong, that it could carry all our sicknesses and diseases Isaiah 53:4. We can boldly say that today when we partake of the bread, we are declaring that Jesus’ health and divine life flow in our mortal bodies. He himself broke bread and poured out wine declaring them to be His own body and His own blood. 1 Corinthians 11:24.
The Lord’s Table also represents the intimate fellowship and union that believers have with Jesus as we share in His death and resurrection (1 Corinthians 10:16-17). This union empowers us to draw from His Christ’s life, strength, and resources for our own spiritual and physical well-being.
John 6:53-58 emphasizes the importance of partaking of Christ, the “Bread of Life,” for the sustenance and nourishment of our souls and bodies.
Another interesting and instructive truth is further down in 1 Corinthians 11:30 where Paul rebukes the people for not discerning the body and eating in an unworthy manner. He goes on to state that this is the reason many of them were sick and weak. On the flip side, we will be correct to say that when the communion is taken in a worthy manner, strength and health are expected. Surely, there is a link between the Holy Communion and our physical well-being.
Jesus instructed that we take the communion in remembrance of him. At the Lord’s table, we are reminded that Jesus’ sacrifice has cleansed us from all unrighteousness, giving us victory over sickness and sin.
The bread and the cup represent Christ’s body and blood, which were given for our redemption. This points to the atonement that Christ made for our sins, enabling our forgiveness, sanctification, justification, deliverance and restoration with God (Ephesians 1:7).
In Isaiah 53:5, the prophet prophesied that the Messiah would bear “our infirmities” and be “wounded for our transgressions,” implying that the healing and transformative power of Jesus’s sacrifice extends to both our spiritual and physical needs (1 Peter 2:24). Therefore, when we remind ourselves of that sacrifice, we are to remember that it was a full, complete and all-encompassing victory that the Jesus got for us. We are as healed as we are saved.
The Lord’s Table is a time of remembrance, where we reflect on Christ’s sacrifice and its implications for our lives (1 Corinthians 11:24-26).
As we partake of the elements, we proclaim the Lord’s death until He returns, affirming our faith in His power to save, heal, and restore us (1 Corinthians 11:26).

When we come to the Lord’s table, we must be sure that we believe that He is there and that these elements bring the real power of His death and resurrection to our spirit, soul, and body
