This is my body

The Master Jesus Christ says: When I broke bread and shared it with my disciples, I said, “This is my body!” This act of sharing the bread reveals the secret of the completion of creation and the redemption of humanity.

You are called to be my body – each of you a working part of my body, and each of you vital for the welfare and the purpose of the whole body. You are in me. Together, you are my body – a living, energetic, and Spirit-filled organism. Through you I still have body in the world.

 

Your fellowship reveals the magic, which maintains the world: that you share with one another, are there for one another, serve one another. This unity-creating magic, which connects heaven and earth, is serving love.

“My body, which is given for you!” From the very beginning of creation, every created being is there for the others and for the whole. In that way it mirrors my being, for I Am the Word, in whom God communicates to you. This serving love was entrusted to humanity in a unique way, for you were created in my image to resemble me. I entrusted the rest of creation to you, so it could find its place in the whole. You were as a mirror, which reflected love in attentive care and in the service of creation.

“My body, which is given for you!” These words have taken on a resonance, which encompass pain, for these were the words I spoke with the words, that the bread is my body, on the night I was betrayed. And again in the words about the wine in the cup of thanks, “This is my blood, shed for you!”

When your lives began to cease reflecting me in the world, the world began to fall apart. The magic of unity was replaced by the magic of power, of fear, of lust and self-complacency. This is why I appeared, vulnerable, with the magic of love and service in a world drenched in dark magic. I gave myself. Despite your violence I gave myself willingly and thus manifested my devotion and serving love as the stronger magic – a magic, which brings life to the dead!

I invite you in to fellowship with me and let you share in my love. Through this, the mirror of your inner self is cleaned, so my presence, as new, can shine out through you in the world. I call you, as new, to serving love, in which the world is new and whole. I create again devoted and serving love in you. When you share your lives with one another, a redeemed humanity is made and grows, which is my body, and which is a small foretaste of the coming completion.

I Am with you, I live in your hearts, so you can recognize me in each other, and together become one body.

“This is my body!”
