Matthew 26:27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
Matthew 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
This is not the literal breaking of bread or the drinking of the grape wine. For when taken literally you are eating your own supper.
1 Corinthians 11:20 When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper.
1 Corinthians 11:21 For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken.
1 Corinthians 11:22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? what shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not.
How can eating and drinking can sins be forgiven? If it is not to eat at the Lord's supper, what is it?
John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
Apostle Paul is not among the apostles of Jesus present in the Lord's supper. He only became an apostle when Jesus was already in heaven.
Not being present at the Lord's supper, Apostle Paul was made partakers, whereof he was made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to him, to fulfill the word of God.
Breaking of the bread and eating it symbolizes the teachings or doctrines of Christ received and followed by the partakers.
1 Corinthians 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
1 Corinthians 15:2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

Drinking the cup of blood of Jesus symbolizes acceptance of the sufferings and afflictions of Christ.

Colossians 1:24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church:
When we come together therefore into a worship, we come not to eat at the Lord's supper, but to hear the gospel of Christ.
All churches except one, highlighted more the rituals of eating and drinking than teaching the gospel.
Clearly, As followers of the teachings of Christ, we have sufferings to endure.
Matthew 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
