New Covenant

“And as they were eating,
Jesus took bread,
blessed and broke it,
and gave it to the disciples and said,
“Take, eat; this is My body.”
Then He took the cup,
and gave thanks,
and gave it to them, saying,
“Drink from it, all of you.
For this is My blood
of the new covenant,
which is shed for many
for the remission of sins”
(Matthew 26:26 – 28)

NOW before eveybody gets lost
In the fact that this is Jesus
Sharing the first Holy Communion
With His Disciples…
Which IT IS!

THINK…New Covenant

So go back and read those
Verses again…

“For this is My blood
of the new covenant”

IF there is a New Covenant
There must have first been
An Old Covenant

And if Jesus is making such
A BIG deal about this
New Covenant…
Which again He IS…

Then surely the Old Covenant
Is no longer needed…

Who of you who buys a new “thing”
Continues to use the “old”?

Usually the NEW replaces the OLD

So why then do we CLING onto
The Old Covenant…?

Why do we hold onto all the
“Thou shalt not’s…?”

Rather than embracing GRACE…?

Jesus taught about the foolishness
Of putting New Wine
Into Old Wineskins
(Mark 2)

We are NOT saved by works…
We are NOT saved by keeping the Law…
By keeping the commandments
Of the Old Covenant…

But we are Saved by Grace through Faith

A New Covenant…
Which involves eating His body…
And drinking His blood…

Being dependant on Him…
And on Him ALONE…

So which Covenant do you follow…?

Doing your best to keep the
Commandments of the Old…?

Or realising that there is nothing
That you can do of yourself
Other than to trust in Him
Knowing that He has already
Done it ALL…

A New Way
By One person
Done for All people
Who will Trust and Believe IN Him…
