“Having therefore, brethren boldness to enter into the Holiest by the blood of Jesus.” –Hebrews 10:19
When you consider fellowship, you likely picture time spent with friends or at a Bible study over coffee. Fellowship means intimacy – friendship.
Adam had previously experienced friendship and fellowship with God before his fall in the Garden of Eden. Sin cut us off from this priceless relationship after Adam’s Fall, and the blood of Jesus could only re-establish it. When you confess and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, the door is opened for you to experience His friendship and fellowship because you announce that you wish to do so.
You can enter God’s presence with confidence because of the blood of Jesus. Between sin and those who have been made the righteousness of God through Jesus, the blood of Jesus creates a strong wall (2 Corinthians 5:21). Communion is a different word meaning fellowship. By partaking in Communion, we can acknowledge that the blood provided a means of restoring our relationship with God. Because of what God did for us through the blood of Jesus, Communion is much more than just a religious ritual. It is an opportunity to acknowledge and fellowship with that act of kindness.
“By His stripes, we are healed.” –Isaiah 53:5 (NKJV)
Do you consider healing when you receive Communion? Most Christians use the blood as a symbol and declare, “Thank God, we are delivered from sin,” and this is true. God be praised for it!
But Isaiah 53:4-5 states that Jesus’ suffering paid for every aspect of man’s existence. He underwent physical suffering, mental anguish, and spiritual torment in exchange for our sins, anxiety, care, sadness, and dread. For our recovery, He endured the stripes and shed the blood. We are healed by His stripes.
In order to free humankind from the curse, God sacrificed everything He had. When we use the blood of Jesus and experience its transforming power, we must never forget to use it fully. Don’t just accept it and use it somewhat. Accept the benefits that Jesus’ death brought. You will miss out if you don’t grasp and absorb all of the blood’s power. Paul stated, “For this reason, many of you are weak and ill, and many of you slumber” (1 Corinthians 11:30, KJV).
The blood of Jesus is free and full and without harm if you need healing right now. There is no requirement for a prescription, an appointment, or contacting your insurance provider. Jesus made it all possible through his blood! You can use Jesus’ blood to obtain healing right now.
