Why Many Christians Are Sick

| August 12, 2017 | Reply

For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep (1 Corinthians 11:29–30).

Have you ever thought about why some Christians are weak and sick, and some even die young? I thank God that He reveals it in His word and gives us the reason as well as the solution. The scripture above clearly explains why some Christians are weak and sick, and why others die prematurely. Why are many Christians sick? They don’t discern the Lord’s body when they partake of the Holy Communion.

Many believers don’t understand what the Holy communion really means. They don’t even know that it is for their healing when they eat it correctly. Taking the communion unworthily has consequences and taking it correctly also brings strength, good health and long life.

Unfortunately, the church down through the years have misunderstood this teaching and taught that if you have sin in your life, you are unworthy and cannot partake of the Holy Communion, lest you become weak and sick, and even die! We have turned a blessing into a curse and because of this, many Christians are afraid to come to the Lord’s table and are therefore robbed of the health-giving power of the Holy Communion.

My friend, there is no such thing as a worthy person! The best of us still miss it and fail. So unworthy people are the only people who partake of the Lord’s Supper. But because Jesus died for unworthy people, He has qualified those of us who take Him as our righteousness to partake of every benefit that He died to give us.

So it is not a matter of whether you are worthy or unworthy to partake, whether you are full of sin or you see yourself holy, but how you partake. Come to the Lord’s table with boldness and partake because Jesus has qualified you with His precious blood. Don’t treat it as a ritual, but release your faith for health and healing as you discern that Jesus’ body was broken so that yours can be healthy and whole today. When you take it, believe that He died for you and was resurrected for you and that His blood has cleansed you of all your past, present and future sins. When you partake like this, you are partaking in a worthy manner, and you will not be weak or sickly, or die prematurely!
