Prayer Focus - Thankfulness and Personal Communion

 

We are encouraged by the Lord Jesus Christ to take communion often to commemorate His Death, Burial and Resurrection. This sober, yet joyful observance is applicable at any time in your life as a grateful reminder of what Jesus did for you so that you could live a life of good health, prosperity, hope, peace and joy.  When you take Communion you are expressing your faith in Christ’s completed work of redemption that put you in right standing with God.   

 

Three Facts:

1) Although it is a practice to take communion with a congregation in a church, it is perfectly permissible to partake in this observance privately.

 

2) The only restriction to taking Communion is, not discerning (understanding) its significance.

 

3) The bread and wine are symbols Christ’s body and shed blood; the suffering He endured through the crucifixion and His death on the cross. As symbols, the bread can be leaven or unleavened, followed by a small amount of wine or grape juice.

 

Scripture Study: Communion

Luke 22:19-20 “And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.  Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.”

1st Corinthians 11:23-25 “For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as (Greek meaning “as many times” suggesting to do so often) ye drink it, in remembrance of me.”

1st Corinthians 10:16 “Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ?”

 

Prayer and Communion:

Thank God for dying on the cross for your sins and then take communion. Afterwards, thank Him for all that you’ve learned on this journey and ask Him to keep it fresh in your mind and heart. Begin to quote Scriptures of His blessings and promises. Give Him praise with a grateful heart.

diet tip

DIET MYTH: Starches are fattening and should be limited when trying to lose weight.

Fact: Many foods high in starch, like bread, rice, pasta, cereals, beans, fruits, and some vegetables (like potatoes and yams) are low in fat and calories. They become high in fat and calories when eaten in large portion sizes or when covered with high-fat toppings like butter, sour cream, or mayonnaise. Foods high in starch (also called complex carbohydrates) are an important source of energy for your body.

Tip: A healthy eating plan is one that:

  • Emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products.

  • Includes lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts.

  • Is low in saturated fats, trans fat, cholesterol, salt (sodium), and added sugars.
