The communion of the body of Christ - The means of our partaking of those benefits which were purchased by the body of Christ - offered for us.

God's Glory the Chief End of Man's Being
Rom. xi. 36.--"Of him and through him, and to him, are all things, to whom be glory for ever." And 1 Cor. x. 31--"Whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God."
