Re:Verse passage – Colossians 2:8-15 (day seven)
And when you were dead in trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive together with him, when he forgave us all our trespasses. (Colossians 2:13)
Don’t miss this verse this week. It holds one of the great Truths we proclaim. When we are obedient to Christ’s call to repentance we are completely forgiven and set free from the dominion of sin. It is for this perfect gift that we celebrate today in worship and in the Supper. We gather and we partake because God has made us alive together with Him.
As we prepare for the Supper today remember this word from 1 Corinthians: Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be answerable for the body and blood of the Lord. Examine yourselves, and only then eat of the bread and drink of the cup. (1 Corinthians 11:27-28)
May we examine ourselves this morning, and find our hearts pure by the body and blood of Jesus Christ.
