Study Guide Rhapsody of Realities June 3 2023: TESTIFY OF HIS DEATH
Written By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
The highlight from today’s devotional is the profound significance of Jesus Christ’s death and the importance of proclaiming it. As believers partake in the communion, they are not just engaging in a religious ritual but are actively declaring the Lord’s death, which is the foundation of the New Testament.
This act symbolizes the cleansing and purifying power of Jesus’ blood, which was shed for the remission of sins. Furthermore, the death of Jesus Christ ratifies the New Testament, making believers associates of the God-kind and granting them access to a divine life of unending victory. This understanding should inspire believers to partake in the communion with a deep sense of reverence and gratitude, fully aware of the transformative power of Jesus’ sacrifice.
1 Corinthians 11:26 – “For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord’s death till he come.”
- Proclaiming the Lord’s Death: The act of partaking in communion is a powerful declaration and proclamation of the Lord’s death. It goes beyond a religious ritual and signifies the foundational event of the New Testament.
- The Significance of His Blood: Jesus’ blood, which was shed for the remission of sins, holds great significance. When believers talk about “His blood,” they are referring to His death. It symbolizes the cleansing and purifying power that washes away all unrighteousness.
- The Ratification of the New Testament: Jesus’ death ratifies the New Testament, establishing believers as associates of the God-kind. By partaking in communion, believers affirm their access to a divine life of unending victory through the covenant established by Jesus’ death.
- Reverence and Gratitude: Understanding the transformative power of Jesus’ sacrifice should inspire believers to approach the act of communion with a deep sense of reverence and gratitude. It is an opportunity to honor and remember the significance of His death.
