(Communion) Eph 1:7 Substitionary Atonement
What did just one of our sins cost?
1. We deserve to die as the penalty for sin.
2. We deserve to bear God’s wrath against sin.
3. We are separated from God by our sins.
4. We are in bondage to sin and to the kingdom of Satan.
Yet Christ - personally placed himself in our place.
Notice the blood sacrifice Christ payed for the forgiveness of our sins.
5 he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, 8 which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight 9 making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ 10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.
In the manner that Jesus called us to, We shall take up the bread. The bread represents the body of Jesus that was crucified on the cross for the forgiveness of sins. As we take up the bread may we examine our hearts and meditate on Christ’s crucifixion.
