1 Corinthians 10:16-17
The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? For we, [though] many, are one bread [and] one body; for we all partake of that one bread.
This is such a glorious truth and awesome responsibility. During the times of Jesus, sitting down to eat with one another was among the greatest acts of friendship. When bread was broken from the same loaf (no biscuits here) and distributed, it was understood that you had this bread in common; a very real symbol of fellowship.
The word ‘communion’ means ’with unity’. In Paul’s letter he uses a Greek word, ‘koinonia’ that conveys an intimate fellowship; a pledge to one another to do what is best for those around you. Today we can be in the midst of hundreds during any given church service and take communion with only ourselves in mind—that sweet time with Jesus—without the heart of Jesus, because we are not thinking of intimate fellowship with fellow believers, or a pledge to do what is best for each other. While not a criticism, the ready-made, shrink-wrapped communion packet is an excellent symbol for this thinking: it is sterile and for a single, personal use.
Take the risk—grab that communion bread with reverent gusto; do not sip, but drink the cup of blessing, which was blessed by Jesus as a sign of the New Covenant. It was His blood, shed for forgiveness of all who seek Him. But it is to be done ’with unity’ of all who gather at the table with you.
Look around and ask: do I live a life that fulfills this pledge to do what is best for others as my Lord Jesus did?
