Apostle Grace Lubega
For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily eateth and drinketh damnation to himself not discerning the Lord’s body. For this cause, many are weak and sickly among you and many sleep (1 Corinthians 11:29-30)
The theme scripture explains why many Christians struggle with weakness, disease and early death despite what Christ’s death at Calvary achieved for us.
When the Bible speaks of taking Holy Communion, understand that this is not just bread and wine. It is the blood and the body of Christ that equate to the life of God. So, if men partake the life of God, why then are some weak, sickly and die?
It is because they eat and drink in an unworthy manner. To partake in an unworthy manner is to partake without the understanding of the God-like nature one has (2 Peter 1:4). Such people find it robbery to be like sons of God and instead perceive it as humility to consider themselves as ‘rugs, and utter nothingness’ when compared to God. To them, God is high up there and they are all the way down here.
God does not fall sick; God is rich; God is glorious; God is great and does great things. The scriptures say of the Christ that as He is, so are you in this world (1 John 4:17). To partake of that life in a worthy manner is to acknowledge this truth, that if He is great, you are great. If He cannot be weak, you cannot be weak; if He is rich, you are rich. Hallelujah!
FURTHER STUDY: 1 Corinthians 6:17, Psalms 44:8
To partake of the God life in a worthy manner is to acknowledge that as He is, so are you in this world; Therefore, if He is great, you are also great. If He cannot be weak, you cannot be weak; If He is rich, you are rich.
PRAYER: God I thank You for this word. I am in You, You are in me and we are one. What You can do, I can also do because it is Your power working mightily through me. I live with this understanding every day and as I grow in it, when many see me, they see You for if one has seen the son, he has seen the father. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
