Communion Meditation November 24, 2019
Who we are.
For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another.
What God did about it.
But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us,
How did God save us?
not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
Why did God save us?
so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
During communion, we confess our need, and God’s provision.
We needed saving. Our very nature needed to change. He washed us in regeneration.
We now stand justified with God, we are the heirs of God, having the sure and certain hope of eternal life.
If you are born again, given saving faith in Jesus Christ for your salvation, this table is spread for you. Come, embrace the provision of your Savior.
If you do not believe, do not come. This is not a mere ritual for the rebellious, it is a salve to the saints. It is designed to strengthen faith and to encourage obedience to such a great salvation.
