The Bread and The Cup

On the first day of the week we honor our Lord Jesus Christ remembering His sacrifice dying upon the cross so those who believe and are baptized may have eternal life. Jesus Christ is worthy of our praise, in fact our very soul depends on the examples of the Lord to mold our hearts to righteousness. Our observance begins with the body of Christ which is represented by the unleavened bread, not only is His body meant to be eaten in remembrance, it’s the strength of the Christian who is called into the body of Christ ( 1 Corinthians 10:1-17). 

A prayer is given and the bread is handed to His disciples for consumption. To GOD be the glory as we consume the flesh of His son. Let’s not forget the fruit of the vine also referred to as the cup which represents the precious blood of Christ. Jesus sinless blood was shed upon the cross to pay the wages of the sin of man. A new covenant emerged from the death of Christ.(1 Corinthians 11:25) The blood of Christ washes clean those who are baptized into His body. A prayer is given and the blood of Christ is consumed by His disciples.

The Lord’s supper is a command seared in our brains to remember Jesus Christ for what he has done and what he will do. As Christians we look back in the past in remembrance of Christ. We look forward to the future of the promises of His return. We hold fast to the word of GOD to examine ourselves worthy to be called Christians. We proclaim the word of GOD to all who do not know the Father who fills all in all.(Ephesians 1:23) The Lord’s supper is our dedication manifested in honor of the one who died for our sins and reconciled us back to GOD. The Bread and the Cup is the observance of spirit and truth.
