Close Covenant Communion with Christ

1 Corinthians 10:14-17
"Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. 15 I speak as to wise men; judge for yourselves what I say. 16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? 17 For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread."

Covenant is far more than contract in the Bible. Jesus says this cup is the new covenant in His blood. Paul says this cup is communion with Christ. Covenant cup. Communion cup. Covenant is communion.

You are sharing in the life of Christ, in covenant with Him. As you partake, Jesus is showing you that you share in His life, that You need Him like you need food and drink. We are part of the same body of Christ. If you share his life, you share this bread. But do not treat this as common, as Hebrews 10 says. Children this is not snack time if you’re hungry right now. Notice the Lord’s Body. That means Jesus’ body, dead on the cross to take your sins away. And that means His body alive, seated all around you, of which you are a member.

Give thanks for being given a seat, a place in His body, with His people.
