If Christ is the head and we the body, then were we not broken for the good of ourselves?
"Take and eat, do this in remembrance of Me" - Christ, the picture of sacrifice and humility as we ought to be but cannot without first being broken.
Also, with Christ as the head and we the body, are not the eyes, ears, mouth and mind Christ's and the arms, legs and heart ours? "With the heart man believes" and once believing we are enabled to see, hear, speak and think as Christ Himself resulting in God viewing us as righteous and useable by Him to His Glory through humble sacrifice - the picture of which we now have in our minds, renewed and transformed through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 11:3 NAS
3 But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ.
Romans 12:4-5 NAS
4 For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function,
5 so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
Luke 22:19 NAS
19 And when He had taken some bread and given thanks, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, "This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me."
Romans 10:10 NAS
10 for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation
