One Cup

23:43


'Again, there is to be one cup, just as there is one loaf. The church is one body, for Christ is not divided into one hundred or more fragments.'
Robert Letham, The Lord's Supper: Eternal Word in Broken Bread (Philipsburg: P&R, 2001), p. 42

'As we share the same cup, we realise that we have an equal share, a common interest in the same Saviour. We realise that we are all on the same level - just sinners saved by grace. There is a greater unity and sense of oneness.'
Edwin Williams, 'The Lord's Supper', Riches of Grace, vii 5 (May 1932), p.214
