On my other blog which details my thoughts and impressions as I read through the Bible chronologically this year, I often state (emphatically) that I am glad I am a New Covenant girl. I stated it frequently through out our readings in Leviticus and probably Numbers as well.
As a result of this statement, my newest Siesta Memory verse is from Luke 22: 19-20, in the New King James Version:
And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.
I pray as we enter Holy Week on Sunday, we really reflect on the New Covenant and what the Lord did for us. He was humiliated, beaten to a pulp, mocked, scorned, took on every sin that was ever committed and every sin that would be committed as well as every illness and disease that people had suffered and would suffer as He experienced an excruciating execution. He was separated from His Father for the 1st time. That really hits home this year as my own, dear earthly father went home to be with our Abba Father 2 months ago.
Pray as you receive Communion, pray you are transformed, and Comminion is not something you partake of out of tradition. His body was broken, His blood was shed for you and for me...let us always be thankful...
I cannot wait to see all the memory verses roll in this morning...and once again I proclaim, I am glad I am a New Covenant Girl!
