God's Will in Today's World

Communion II

Prepare to receive My body and blood.
This is not ordinary food and drink.
This is Myself given for you,
broken, humiliated,
hung on a cross of shame for you.
How are you to receive,
discerning the body?
Realize, dear one, My physical body
has been replaced
by the Spiritual body
of the church, My believers.
You are now My body on earth.
What I gave you was My brokenness.
You also need to approach Me
with your brokenness.
The sacrifice I desire from you
is a broken, contrite heart,
yielded fully to Me.
My blood covers all transgressions
and you are forgiven.
I need your abiding in Me.
Then My body in you is made alive,
made one with Me
and with the Father also.
This is a great mystery.
Ponder upon it and come,
come receive Me as your own.

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite
heart; these, O God, You will not despise.

(Psalm 51:17)
