Reformation Day Communion

This table has been reformed. It used to be an altar where animal sacrifices were offered. If this were 3000 years ago, I would be holding a knife, dealing with blood, and giving you roasted meat to eat as a peace offering before God. And that was faithful worship before the God of Abraham. But now Jesus has brought about a reformation. His sacrifice ended the need for all blood sacrifice.

Is your life reformed like this table? Do you receive the nourishing, refreshing life of Jesus, and pass it on to others? Or are you trying to obey your way into God’s favor? It’s a devilish trap to rely on your obedience, to define yourself by your obedience instead of by God’s grace. All our righteousness is filthy rags, but Jesus is given to you. You didn’t put him there. You didn’t ask for Him to be given to You. But here He is, and if you want to live, you must stand still and believe (2 Chron. 20:17).
