Acts 2:46 - So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, & breaking bread from house 2 house, they ate their food with gladness & simplicity of heart,

Back then in the early church, Christians would meet each other every day, either corporately in the temple or from house 2 house in smaller groups. And when they met in their homes, the Bible tells us that they would break bread. That’s the Holy Communion, & they took it every day!

Now, I am not saying that u must take the Holy Communion every day. But if u feel led 2 & u want 2, go ahead! The thing about taking the Holy Communion daily is this: If u are sick, u can be made well on a gradual basis. This means that u get healthier & stronger from day-2-day — first 30-fold, then 60-fold, then a 100-fold!

You see, while u can receive healing through the prayer of faith (Mark 11:24), it sometimes puts pressure on u bcoz it requires u 2 believe that u receive it all — complete healing — the moment u pray. There is nothing wrong with the prayer of faith, but u may find yourself saying, “I must believe I receive it all, now! I must believe I have it all, now!”

But the Holy Communion allows u 2 receive a measure of healing every time u partake in faith, so that u get better & better. The more u take it, the better u become. There is no pressure 2 believe that u receive it all at once. Isn’t God good? He meets u at your level of faith!

Now, there are cases I know of in our church, in my family & in my own life, where the manifestation of healing is immediate & complete. If it happens that way, praise God! But if not, don’t worry. The more u partake, the better u will become.

I know of people who take the Holy Communion 3 times a day, just like they would medicine! Why not? My friend, if u are very sick & u are diligently taking your medication 3 times a day, why not give the Lord’s Supper the same amount of attention? Why not boost your recovery rate? And the next time u eat the bread & drink the cup, u may just find your disease totally gone!
