Understanding the bread and of the cup in the Lord's Supper
These two symbols have unique, definite meanings that literally summarize the entire Christian life; andcorrect understanding of the bread and the cup will keep the believer doctrinally sound and balanced. Believers will spiritually stay on track and in communion with the Lord. The believer will begin to walk in the authority, power and glory. We need a clear understanding of His body and His blood.
who Himself bore our sins in His own BODY on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness--by whose stripes you were healed. (1 Peter 2:24).
His body as referred to is represented by the bread. His body was delivered up to deliver us from sin so that we can live for Him and set free from sin, not just forgiven for sin. We see, the cup speaks of forgiveness for sin but the message of the bread is one of us being set free from or delivered out of our sin through Christ’s death on the cross. There are numerous scriptures that make this point; i.e., Romans 6:1-11, Romans 6:18, Galatians 2:20, II Corinthians 5:14-15, etc.
Understanding the elements can help us to live subject to the rules of action and consequence of sin (action) leads to death (consequence) is death. The body of Christ means deliverance from sin while the blood of Christ means deliverance from death. The body of Christ means living for righteousness while the blood of Christ means experiencing God’s life.
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
