Mathew 26:26 :”Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.”
Hi friends,                         
We are all familiar with this verse which is referred to as the Last Supper that Jesus had with His disciples while on earth and it marks the commemoration of the Holy Communion in the Church. We all know that the bread symbolizes the Body of Jesus who is the Bread of Life and the Wine represents His Blood which was shed for us on the Cross of Calvary. As we His Body partake of these elements by faith, His resurrection power fills us and enables us to live in victory like Jesus did when He was on the earth.
The Communion is not a mere ritual we practice but in it there is life changing power each time we partake of the Lord’s Table. Since the word of God is alive and active, no matter how many times we read a particular verse, each time the Holy Spirit (the author of the Bible) illumines our minds and gives us the necessary heavenly bread we require for our everyday practical lives. As Jesus prayed, “Give us this day our daily bread” in the Lord’s Prayer. In this post, I want to share with you another way in which our key verse can minister to us.

We are the Body of Christ and just as Jesus took the Bread, blessed it and broke it and then gave it, He does the same with every true believer of His. First, he takes us from our sinful situations and then He blesses us -fills us with His Holy Spirit. After this, He breaks us meaning sanctifies us of all that is not of His nature and then He gives us to the needy meaning He uses us to become His servants, His mouth pieces to speak and do what He wants us to.

Every man or woman of God whom the Lord has used must go through these experiences so that we become fit and ready for His use. Every trial only draws us closer to the wonderful plan the Father has for each and every one of us. The life of the Grammy Award Winning Contemporary Christian Song writer/Singer/ Worship Leader Michael W Smith is one among the many testimonies of people who have gone through pain first and then used mightily by God.

As we partake of the Lord’s Supper let us do so with a humble prayer: "Lord Jesus, we surrender ourselves afresh to You, do with us what You did with the bread & the wine at the Last Supper – take us, bless us , break us and use us. "-Amen
