How to walk


The Bible does not say,

“Don’t walk in the flesh and you will

fulfill the desires of the Spirit.”

Rather it says,

“Walk in the Spirit and you

won’t fulfill the desires of the

flesh.”

Communion —His Body and Blood


 

1 Corinthians 10:16, 17

 

For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread,” 1 Corinthians 10:17.

 

It is very sad, but my children look like me. I wish it were not the case, but they carry some resemblance of me, whether it is the way they walk, talk, behave, look or their propensity for acne outbreaks. My kids’ character traits and physical appearances are signs that they share the same DNA as their mother and me. They are our flesh and blood, so to speak.

 

Similarly, everyone who calls himself a child of God will carry the character traits of his Heavenly Father. When a child of God enters into a covenant relationship with the body of Christ, he is identifying himself with Jesus Himself. In the practice of communion, each church member partakes of the unleavened bread and fruit of the vine, symbolizing his fellowship in the sufferings of Christ, in which His body was broken and His blood poured out. This act identifies a person with Christ and solidifies his membership in His body, His church. One becomes His flesh and blood, so to speak. What is the purpose of communion?—to remember the sacrifice of Jesus, to participate in His sacrifice and to strengthen the bond among the members of the body of Christ.

 

 

JUST A THOUGHT – Do you resemble Christ?
