With the cross, the death and the resurrection of Jesus, a new covenant established on better promises was initiated. Still available today, the healing compassion demonstrated by Jesus in the Gospels is released over God’s people today. Our hope and prayer is that you receive yours.
As we look forward to Jesus’ return, we memorialize the new covenant by partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine. Peter, one of Jesus close disciples notes these benefits attached to this sacrament: “He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed.” (1 Peter 2:24)
We are called to make disciples, to invest our lives into others for multiplication in the Kingdom of God. Life is better when we grow together.
Today on the traditional celebration of Jesus Triumphal entrance into Jerusalem, we are also celebrating Communion. This is the greatest and most powerful sacrament entailing forgiveness of sin, healing for the body, and eternal redemption.
“Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.” Ephesians 4:15-16
