Discerning The Lords Body

1 Corinthians 11:28-29
28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup.
29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.

When we receive communion scripture teaches us that if we do not rightly discern the Lord’s body this is the reason why many are weak, sick, and some die early. When we rightly discern His body we have properly judged ourselves. We discern the Lord’s body three ways:

  1. Acknowledging the stripes of Jesus that paid for your bodily healing. With the stripes that wounded Him, we are healed and made whole. This is not a promise, it is a fact already established.
  2. Do not speak evil of other believers for they are a part of the body. If we slander and gossip about other believers, we are speaking harm to ourselves. We are to walk in the love of God toward one another, therefore not speaking evil of others.
  3. Recognize who you are in Christ Jesus and do not belittle yourself, for you are His body whom He has purchased. When we do not recognize who we are in Christ, we will be hindered in receiving what we have in Christ. We must come to know who we are to partake of what we have been given through His blood that was shed for us.

So if we want to walk in health and healing we must learn to discern the Lord’s body. When we do we can experience the benefit of what Jesus purchased for us through the blood He shed; and through the body that He gave for us as He not only bore our sins, but He bore our sickness, disease, pain and suffering also. Rightly discern the Lord’s body and you can receive what He has provided for you.
