God is taking the world somewhere. He has promised to do for us what He did for Jesus after He died. God really does love the whole world, and He wants to make it alive in a new way, like He did with Jesus on the first day of the week. And when He does we will meet Jesus Himself! When we take the bread break it and eat it, and when we take the wine and share it around it isn’t only that we seem to be there with him at his last supper. We are with Him in His new world. What we do in this meal brings all the past and the future all together into one moment. (The Meal Jesus Gave Us, N. T. Wright, 2003)
The supper of the Lord is an inter-participation with Him in a way that surpasses the limitations of our temporal understanding. The corporal body of Jesus, which by his power or energy enters into the bread and the wine, becomes food and drink for the believers to take into their own bodies. Upon consumption of it, both spiritually and physically, we become fused with the Lord who acts through the bread and the wine. Thus, it connects us with the eternal God who is Jesus, and He takes us into eternity with Him. When we take of the bread and wine we enter into eternity- Kairos. Hence, for the believer, it is a great blessing to experience the goal of their life, salvation, and for the non-believer it is their self-inflicted curse that they experience. The bread and wine of communion are the time-machine that leads to eternity.
