Settle It at the Table
Faith has never changed. God has never changed. The only ones who need to do some changing are you and I. We need to make some adjustments.
First, we need to get off our religion and get on the Word of God. We need to find out what God has provided and walk in it in an indelible manner.
We need to learn to take advantage of what Hebrews 6:18 calls the two immutable things in which it was impossible for God to lie—God’s sworn oath in the blood and the body of Jesus. We need to start thinking in terms of God’s blood oath that can’t be broken. That’s what the New Testament is.
That’s what you’re dealing with when you take Communion. Bread and wine—body and blood. It’s the securing of the covenant.
When you want something settled once and for all, go to God about it. Come to Him with all your homework done and go over His Word with Him. Rehearse before Him His promises about that situation, then seal it with Communion. That will finalize it in your mind.
I can tell you from experience, it is a powerful thing. Gloria and I have done it many times over some very serious issues. It sealed our faith so completely that at the moment of Communion, those things ceased to be issues for us in our own minds. They were settled in the blood of Jesus.
If you’re facing something today that, in the natural, looks overwhelming, go to the table. Whether it’s cancer, a serious financial need or direction you’re needing, settle it in the blood of Jesus. Settle it at the Communion table.
Speak the Word
“As I receive Communion, I put myself in remembrance of what Jesus did for me through His death on the cross. Because of Jesus I am redeemed from the curse of the law.” (1 Corinthians 11:25-26; Galatians 3:13)
