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!
While they were eating, He took some bread, and after a blessing He broke it, and gave it to them, and said, “Take it; this is My body.” Mark 14:22
The Last Supper, The Lords Supper, or Communion, whatever you want to call it was a sacred event that declared the coming of the New Covenant! Why was Jesus and his disciples having a feast? Because it was Passover and Jesus is the Passover Lamb, Jesus is the fulfillment of the Passover as the Lamb of God
Jesus said to “Do this in remembrance of Me” taking communion is a sacred time when we reflect on Christ and what he has done for us. As the Apostle Paul says we should “Examine ourselves” (1 Corinthians 11:28) meaning to reflect on our relations with Christ
As Jesus broke the bread he said this is symbolic of his body broken on the cross for our sins. His body he laid out for us as a atoning sacrifice for our sins not his!
And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave it to them, and they all drank from it. And He said to them, “This is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many. Mark 14:23-24
The wine was symbolic for his blood shed on the cross to cover us of our sins. This is the blood of the Lamb that allowed death to Passover us. Jesus said his blood is a New Covenant which is for many! God and sin has become reconciled
When you take communion, do it in remembrance of Christ and what he has done for You! Examine yourself and get right with God, repent any sin in your life and rejoice in the Lord Amen!
