Psalm 103:2-3 NKJV
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases.
This bible verse from Psalm explains that the forgiveness of sin is the starting point for the healing of the soul. First, we must turn back from our wrong ways and show remorse for our wrongdoings. A desire to change must be awakened in our hearts. Then we can fall under the grace of forgiveness, and finally feel the special healing effect of the Lord’s Supper.
This creates a beautiful process: conversion, forgiveness, healing. Holy Communion cannot be just a repetitive ceremony; it must touch our soul deeply. We must first show remorse by accounting to ourselves what we have done wrong, then receive forgiveness, and then allow the healing powers of the Lord to move.
What areas of my life need the healing power of the Lord’s Supper? How can I deepen my connection with Christ though Holy Communion? How can I draw from this healing power?
