April 5 (Thursday) – New Covenant

Matthew 28:6–7  He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.

Luke 22:17-20 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he said, “Take this, and divide it among yourselves. For I tell you that from now on I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.” And he took bread, and when he had 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.” And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.”

Over the past 17 days, you have looked at various sins in your life.  Due to our relationship with Christ, the new covenant, we can repent from our sins and be forgiven.  Are you partaking of this new covenant?  Do you seek repentance when you sin?  Are you thankful for this new covenant?

Confess how you have taken lightly the sacrifice of Christ.

E-devotion by Bill Daniel (Elder)
We humans are the most forgetful of all God’s creation.  Not that we can’t remember phone numbers, addresses, locations, dates, people and the like.  We remember a great deal of sports trivia, world events and past wrongs we hold against others.  What we seem to have difficulty with though, is remembering God.

God is always having to exhort us to remember… “ remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy, remember the Lord your God who brought you out of Egypt, remember the Lord your God, remember the wondrous works that he has done, remember also your creator.”  All through God’s Word He commands us to remember, and so on the eve of Jesus’ crucifixion as He gathered with his closest disciples He again commanded them and us to remember.

Remember that He took our place on the cross, “This is my body, which is given for you.”  Remember that his blood would satisfy God’s wrath against our sin once and for all as lamb’s blood could never do, “This cup that is poured out for you is the New  Covenant.”

“Given for you,” and “Poured out for you.”

So we are to live our lives daily in remembrance.
