COMMUNION MEDITATION 6_ONE BODY IN CHRIST

(1 Cor 10:16-17)

1 Cor 10:16-17 (NIV)

16 Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ? 17 Because there is one loaf, we, who

are many, are one body, for we all partake of the one

loaf.

1 Cor 10:17 (AMP)

For we [no matter how] numerous we are, are one body, because we all partake of the one Bread [the One Whom the communion bread represents].

1. How wonderful to know that we are one in Christ! We are one family. There is no distinction or discrimination:

GALATIONS 3

26 You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 There

is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor

female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 If

you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. (NIV)

2. Not only do we have fellowship with the Lord through his death on calvary, but we also have fellowship with one another through our common participation in the death of our Lord Jesus Christ.

3. God has given us brothers and sisters in the Lord. We give thanks to God for our Christian family. No man is an island, we need one another.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (quickview) 

9 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: 10 If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! 11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? 12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Proverbs 27:17 (quickview) :

“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”

4. There is diversity among believers but there is unity. We share a relationship one with another because of our relationship with Christ.

5. [1 Cor 10:18] Paul illustrates this point by pointing back to the sacrifices offered in the Old Testament. When a sacrifice was brought the sacrifice was shared. A portion of it was burnt on the altar, a portion was eaten by the priests, and a portion eaten by those who offered it. The participants identified with what was sacrificed and with each other.
