Understanding the communion elements!

"Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled 
 Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding."
         (Prov 9:5-6)

                   Today, let's have a look at communion. It is more, than, just a church ritual. It is more than just crackers and grape juice! It is a sacred, holy and blessed event! It's benefits are out of this word. When we celebrate communion, we are celebrating a new covenant. We are celebrating what Jesus has done for us at the cross. (I Cor 11:24) 
                      As we read Proverbs 9:1-6, it shows us Wisdom and it is telling us something.The word tells us that Christ is made unto us wisdom, so this is Jesus calling to us and trying to get our attention. He has a house built for us. The word of God tells us that we are hidden in him. He is our protector and wants to bless us. 
                  He is inviting us to the table? My question to you is-Will you come? Notice what he says--"Eat of my bread...Drink of my wine!" He wants to give you understanding. Understanding of your financial problems. Understanding of your sickness and healing. Understanding of what you are going thru. Communion is something that you can have NOW and don't have to wait until the church gets together. You can have communion by yourself and ask God for wisdom and understanding. Abraham had communion in the old Testament and his life was never the same (Gen 14:18-23)
                    Communion caused Abraham to make the right decision and have discernment when the king of Sodom came with an offer. Abraham knew that his offer wasn't wise. He wanted to give Abraham money, but he had an ulterior motive. Many a Pastor would take heed to this when accepting big sums of money. Sometimes, a person would give in order to control the church. Having communion helped Abraham see thru this deception. So, my friends, spend some time meditating in this and remember to eat the bread and drink of Wisdom's wine. It will avoid pitfalls in your life! God bless!
