We are God's property purchased and will be collected in what everstate we are found. How do you want to present yourself back to you Father.
The Demands of Christ
Chris Brewster • The Well Church OKC • Sermon • • 6 views • 1:08:54
Fundamentally, we are created by God, who desires we are in perfect relationship with Him for ever. Our sin condemns us to the exact opposite, a life of wandering, hurt, destruction and eternal damnation. The reason that Jesus came to us was for the sole purpose of redeeming us, at an unimaginable price, to be made perfect, in Him, so that we might be back in right standing with God. God did and does what He did and does in order that we might have life and that we might be in a righteous position before God.
What is the Lord's Supper? It is God's presence. And, in God's presence there is both salvation and judgement. From Genesis to Revelation, we see humanity having intimate relationship with God, losing that intimate relationship due to sin and rebellion, Christ regaining that relationship through His atoning death on the cross, and the relationship being take to its joyful consummation in Christ's return in glory (the marriage supper of the Lamb).
What is the meaning of the Lord's Supper? Tracing the theme of the meal from Genesis to Revelation, we see that the meal is intimate relationship with God. When God is present, there is salvation and judgement. In the Lord's Supper, we see our judgement taken by Jesus in His broken body and blood poured out for us, and we see our salvation in God giving Himself to us in Christ represented by the bread and wine.
