Paul wrote these words to encourage the Corinthians to stay strong in the midst of the enticements of the world. They were participating in things that weren't furthering their ministry, or strengthening their faith. He wanted them to remember that they partook of communion to show that they were part of a community: the body of Christ.
And that is why I chose this verse to be part of this plan. We are part of that same body. Whether we are taking the Lord's Supper, or simply going to Wednesday night supper, we are (or should be) part. And when we are part of the body that is something to be thankful for-we get to participate in Christ's plan, we are able to work alongside of Him to glorify the Father.
