"Don't we take into ourselves the body, the very life, of Christ? Because there is one loaf, our many-ness becomes one-ness ---Christ doesn't become fragmented in us. Rather, we become unified in him." 1 Corinthians 10:16-17 MSG. The Communion meal of bread and wine is a meaningful yet a mysterious part of our life in Yeshua. Communion faciltates our union with Him, our fellowship and partnership(son-ship)with Yeshua. It is a sacred and intimate experience which we enjoy....Daily!(frequently). At the very core of this communion is the miracle of two becoming one, much the same way that a man and woman are united into one flesh through covenant...Marriage! By participation in the bread and wine, the body and the blood of Yeshua, we are united into life with Him. And that's not all! We are also united with each other, our overcoming brothers and sisters who believe!!!Not only vertical(HIM & us) but also horizontal (us with each other)! God's presence always draws us deeper into intimate fellowship with Him and with one another! This Holy partnership will change our nation and the World! COMMUNION THE CENTERPIECE of FELLOWSHIP...Let's do it OFTEN!
In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
