As we continue in understanding the Communion as the weapon of war, the second important thing that you should understand as you approach the Communion table is that it is a practice in the life of Jesus.
The Bible records that Jesus took bread on the same night that He was to be arrested, and when He had given thanks, He said, “Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me” (1 Cor. 11:23-24).
This means we are to break bread for remembrance or as an act of proclamation of Jesus Christ in the same manner.
The cup that contains the wine is the symbol or emblem of the blood of Jesus. Jesus took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it in remembrance of me (1 Cor. 11:25).” This shows that there is no limit to how often you can take the Communion. In Acts 2, the apostles broke bread daily from house to house. From Acts 20, they could only break bread when they gathered together because the congregation had grown to a large number, and the apostles could no longer cover each house daily.
Exodus 12 tells us the origin of the Communion; it was referred to as the Passover in the Old Testament. Whatever the Passover did for the children of Israel in the Old Testament is what the bread and the wine do for us today.
PRAYER: Lord, I come into correct alignment with the sacredness of the Communion table and I am awakened to the power therein, in Jesus’ name. Amen!
