Is not the cup of blessing which we bless a sharing in the blood of Christ? Is not the bread which we break a sharing in the body of Christ? 1 Corinthians 10:16
There are so many beautiful things about Communion, it’s a complete shame for any Christian who doesn’t regularly practice it. Besides the fact that Jesus commanded us to “Do this in remembrance of him” (Luke 22:19) The symbolic natures and fellowship we receive from communion is a spiritual experience in itself
The Cup that represents the shedding of Jesus blood, that is the complete atonement for our sins, we share that same Cup of Christ. Think about that, with all the divisions in Christianity, we all share the same Cup of Salvation
The Bread that is symbolic for the breaking of Jesus body on the cross, again we all share that same bread that took the punishment for our sins. The penalty that we deserved , was taken voluntarily by Christ. We partake all in that same Cup and Bread, what a beautiful sign of unity and fellowship
Since there is one bread, we who are many are one body; for we all partake of the one bread. 1 Corinthians 10:17
We are One Body of Christ, for we all partake in unity from the same Cup and Bread, that was given to us from the One True Lord and God. As we mourn his death and celebrate his victory through the resurrection. We anticipate the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ together! Amen!
