"ONE BREAD, ONE BODY"

 
"Because the loaf of bread is one, we, many though we are, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf." —1 Corinthians 10:17
 

The title of these booklets is taken from the above Scripture. Because we share in the one bread of Holy Communion, we are one body. And if we are one as Jesus and the Father are one, then the world will believe that the Father sent the Son (Jn 17:21), God's plan of salvation will be fulfilled, and God's kingdom will have come "on earth as it is in heaven." Our unity is absolutely essential. Jesus came to break down the barriers and make the two into one (Eph 2:14). In one Spirit, all of us have been baptized into one body (1 Cor 12:13). It is not only "good" and "pleasant, where brethren dwell at one" (Ps 133:1), it's an absolute necessity. For example, it is not just "good" for your hands to be connected to the other parts of your body; it is a "must."

Because unity is a necessity, partaking of the one bread, that is, Communion, is a necessity. These booklets are written to motivate us to receive Communion daily. If done in the right spirit, this is among the most important acts of faith we can make in the Christian life.

 
Prayer: Jesus, at this moment, may hundreds decide to receive Communion daily.
Promise: "Each man speaks from his heart's abundance. Why do you call me 'Lord, Lord,' and not put into practice what I teach you?" —Lk 6:45-47
Praise: Bill depends on daily Communion to give him strength to stand for Christ in a hostile work environment.
