Preparing for Worship

This coming Sunday at Grace Presbyterian Church, we’ll be celebrating the Lord’s Supper during the morning worship service. God has always given tangible, concrete signs to accompany His covenant of grace; in the Old Covenant he gave the signs of circumcision and the Passover meal, and in the New Covenant He has given the signs of baptism and the Lord’s Supper. These pictures of the gospel give us assurance, for they confirm the promises of God to our weak faith. They are designed for the fact that we are embodied – our bodies are a part of our humanity – we are finite, we have five senses, we aren’t merely souls – as we see and touch and taste and smell and feel, our faith and hope and love for Christ are fanned into flame. Come to the table hungry this week; hungry for grace, hungry for God, hungry for all that God is to us in Christ.

Also, this Sunday evening we will have a congregational hymn sing and a time of Q/A – so if you have any questions, feel free to email them to me ahead of time.

SDG,
Ezra
