The remembrance of Christ’s death also keeps us in the love of God. Through the remembrance of His death, we are constantly reminded of God’s love for us. So whether we are being reminded of Christ’s sacrifice or being filled by the Spirit, we are continually being compelled by Christ’s love (2 Corinthians 5:14).
The breaking of bread is a very significant act we do. We see in the time of the Apostles (1 Corinthians 11:29,30), and even today, many sleep because they do not properly discern the body of Christ. Jesus said: “this is My body, which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me” (1 Corinthians 11:24). It is not symbolic, but rather once we give thanks, the bread is spiritually transformed into Christ’s body. And this is why it contains life. When we partake of the body of Christ, we follow the example of Christ, and the Apostles, taking one loaf of unleavened bread. Just as Christ has one body, we partake of one loaf of the “unleavened bread of sincerity and truth” (1 Corinthians 5:8, 10:16-17). The unleavened bread is our symbol of sincerity and commitment to maintaining the purity of the faith that Christ has entrusted to us.
We must remember Christ’s sacrifice in this way as often as possible until He returns. Through Christ’s power, we become like Christ who gave His life for the salvation of others.
