Christmas & The Lord's Supper
Merry Christmas |
The time of waiting is past, and the people of God celebrate the arrival of their Messiah, who has visited and redeemed His people.
"Glory to God in the highest heaven and on earth peace for those whom His favor rests."
"The Word has become flesh, and has come to dwell among us, and we have seen His glory. Glory as on the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth."
We give thanks to God the Father that our Savior, Jesus Christ, the night before He suffered, gave us this memorial of His sacrifice, until his coming again. For on the night of His arrest He took bread and, after giving thanks to the Father, broke it and said... "This is my body, which is for you; do this as a memorial to me."
In the same way He took the cup after supper and said... "This cup is the new covenant sealed by my blood. Whenever you drink it, do this in remembrance of me."
May we be nourished and strengthened through this Supper. May all who share in this Supper be united in Him. As the Father and Son are One, so we are One as First Mabelvale, a church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
