There is Power in Communion
By Victoria Osteen - Mar 16, 2010
In my own life, I have made it through many challenges by submitting myself to the power of Jesus Christ through communion…right in the privacy of my own home.

When we partake of communion, we are recognizing the power of what Jesus did when He died on the cross. We are acknowledging that supernatural work and honoring who He is in our lives. God gave His only Son, Jesus, so that we could have a relationship with the Father. Not only does He want us to live an abundant life on this earth, but an abundant life in eternity. John chapter three tells us, "Whosoever believes on the Lord Jesus Christ shall be saved." When you partake of communion, you are saying with your actions, "I believe." As we remember what Jesus did by partaking of communion, I believe by faith we're releasing the power of salvation afresh and anew in our lives.

You don't have to wait until church on Sunday to partake of communion. You can simply use crackers and grape juice, bread and water, or whatever you have that can symbolize the body and blood of Jesus. See, it's not the elements that hold the power; it's your faith in Him. It's your obedience to His Word that says, "Do this in remembrance of Me."

I encourage you to find time on a regular basis to honor the Lord through communion and discover the blessing of fellowshipping with our heavenly Father in such a personal way.

And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is My body given for you; do this in remembrance of Me" (Luke 22:19, NIV).
