Every Sunday, Christians worldwide gather in their respective churches to participate in the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. It is a profound moment where believers commemorate the Last Supper of Jesus Christ with his disciples. The Eucharist, also known as the Lord's Supper or Communion, holds great significance within the Christian faith, representing the body and blood of Christ. This article explores the divine union experienced through the Eucharist Christ Feast with the Church.

Understanding the Eucharist: A Brief Overview

In order to grasp the depth of the Eucharistic celebration, it is important to understand its origins and significance in Christian theology. According to the biblical account, during the Last Supper, Jesus took bread, gave thanks, broke it, and bestowed it upon his disciples, saying, "Take, eat; this is my body." He then took the cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins."

The Eucharist is considered one of the seven sacraments in Catholic and Orthodox traditions and a central act of worship in many Protestant churches. It is believed that through the consecration of bread and wine, they become the true body and blood of Christ. This transformation is known as transubstantiation in Catholic theology. The faithful consume the Eucharist as a way to commune with Christ and receive the grace of forgiveness and spiritual nourishment.

Divine Union with Christ

When partaking in the Eucharist, Christians experience a profound union with Jesus Christ. It is a moment of intense spiritual connection, where believers are invited to share in the sacrificial love of Christ and his redemptive work. Through consuming the transformed bread and wine, Christians symbolically ingest the body and blood of Christ, uniting themselves with him and becoming partakers of his divine nature.

This union is not merely symbolic; it is a mystical encounter with the living Christ. Christians believe that Christ is truly present in the Eucharist, making it a powerful sacrament that imparts spiritual nourishment and grace. Through this union, believers are strengthened in their faith, encouraged to live a life pleasing to God, and invited to participate actively in Christ's work of redemption in the world.

Celebrating with the Church

The Eucharist is not an individualistic act but a communal one. It is celebrated in the midst of the Church, the body of Christ assembled together. This gathering of believers reflects the unity of the Church and the shared fellowship that exists among Christians. The Eucharistic feast is a celebration of the love, communion, and fellowship that believers have with one another and with Christ as the head of the Church.

By partaking in the Eucharist as a community, Christians are reminded of their interconnectedness and commitment to one another. It is a moment to remember that the body of Christ is not confined to a single place or time but transcends these boundaries. The Eucharist reaffirms the reality of the spiritual communion among believers and the universal nature of the Church.

The Transformative Power

The Eucharist holds transformative power for those who experience it with genuine faith. It is more than a religious ritual or mere remembrance; it is an encounter with the living Christ that has the potential to change lives. The sacrament offers forgiveness, healing, and reconciliation. It grants believers the strength to persevere in their faith and empowers them to live as witnesses of Christ's love in the world.

Through the Eucharist, Christians are reminded of their ultimate destination: being in perfect union with Christ. The feast of the Eucharist is a foretaste of the heavenly banquet that awaits believers, where they will partake in eternal communion with God and with one another. It serves as a reminder of the abundant blessings and grace that God has bestowed upon humanity.

The Eucharist Christ Feast with the Church is a sacred celebration that encapsulates the divine union between believers and Christ. It is a moment of powerful connection, a communal act of worship, and a transformative experience that nourishes the soul. The Eucharist serves as a reminder of Christ's sacrificial love, his redemptive work, and the fellowship that exists among believers. This celebration invites Christians to partake in the divine presence of Christ, strengthening their faith and empowering them to live as witnesses of his love in the world.

This book is envisioned as a follow up to Stookey's successful Baptism: Christ's Act in the Church, published in 1982. It will provide historical--theological perspective in a style that is "popular," rather than academically heavy; and, it will be聽ecumenical in scope, but with a concentration on Protestantism. The shared Calvinian eucharistic tradition of Presbyterians, UCC, and Methodists will be particularly explored. It will also provide material pertinent to preaching, study of the eucharist by laity, and practical local reform that implements recent revisions of denominational rites.
