Brothers and sisters: I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus, on the night he was handed over, took bread, and, after he had given thanks, broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes.
Jesus was very clear. He died on the cross, but before He did, He gave us His body and blood. He gave it to us so we might have eternal life. He did not just give us a symbol to remember Him by. He gave us His body and blood so that we could partake of it and have Him physically in our own bodies. Why cannot people believe that? Why cannot they believe that God has the power to transform that bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ? Because God is in their convenient box. Allow God to be God and learn the truth.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, the gift of your Son is a precious gift that cannot be denied. Thank you for your eternal life. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Our blessing-cup is a communion with the Blood of Christ.
