At the Lord’s Table

At the Lord’s Table, there are two main theological truths that we must affirm and appropriate in our Christian pilgrimage.  First, that as we eat the bread and drink the cup by faith, we commune with Christ and he with us, and consequently we are nourished in faith and grow in grace.  And second, which should not be separated from the first, at the Lord’s Table, as we commune with Christ and he with us, we are also communing with one another.

But given the individualistic piety that our culture tends to breed, we often focus on the first, our communion with Christ and he with us, at the costly neglect of the second, our communion with one another, concluding that they are not somehow related.

However, on the ground of 1 Corinthians 10:15-17, I am compelled to conclude that our communion with Christ and our communion with one another, at the Lord’s Table, are two sides of the same theological coin.  They go together.
