Common elements, bread and wine, converted by Jesus into holy elements by His spoken words are given back to us in the Lord's Supper. We receive these elements passively as His gifts to us. These spoken words by Jesus (Matthew 26:26-28) are the heart of Christianity. This eating in the Lord's Supper is for the sustenance of His people.
Scripture: Mark 4:11; Hebrews 13:8; Revelation 6:9
