This is a covenantal meal. This cup is the New Covenant in the blood of Jesus, and this bread is His body for you. Every week when we gather here you are renewing covenant with your God. A covenant is an agreement with stipulations and blessings and curses which flow from obedience or disobedience. And this meal is a covenantal victory meal, this is tasting the first fruits of salvation and grace and blessing. Because of Jesus, God already accepts us as covenant keepers in the midst of our sins, in the midst of our trials and struggles. God invites us to the feast of the New Covenant as though all of the terms and requirements of the covenant have been kept. Because they have. And that only leaves one thing for you to do. Jesus says, “This is the work of God: that you believe in Him whom He sent.” So come and believe, eat and believe, drink and believe, and rejoice because God has already accepted your works.
