Taking part in communion is a significant part of the Christian faith. That while we were sinners, Jesus would sacrifice Himself for us to give us life, and life in abundance. And because of this sacrifice, we get to remember what He did for us as well as WHY He did it for us. Jesus loves you. He loves me. And He loves everyone on earth.
The bible says the following in John 6:54-56 of The Passion Translation:
54 Eternal life comes to the one who eats my body and drinks my blood, and I will raise him up in the last day. 55 For my body is real food for your spirit and my blood is real drink. 56 The one who eats my body and drinks my blood lives in me and I live in him.
With our pre-packaged communion cups, the wafer represents the body of Christ. The juice represents the blood of Jesus. When we share communion by eating the wafer and drinking the juice, we are acknowledging what He did for us.
It is because of verse 55 that we also acknowledge that this is a Miracle Meal. And just like food nourishes us and strengthens us, so too does The Miracle Meal of Christ. The bible teaches us that in the experience of taking the Holy Communion, Christ is present to meet and strengthen his people.
By receiving the spiritual flesh and blood, Christ lives in us and us in him. How blessed that He would choose us.
