WHAT DID YOU SAY?
“For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” (Hebrews 8:12)
This week at Worship Life Calvary Chapel San Clemente is a special time. The first Sunday of the month we celebrate communion. It’s a time for us to remember two things. (1) The Lord is our God. (2) He alone saves us and delivers us from bondage. There are many who teach, when you come to the Communion Table you need to make sure you clean the slate before God and confess all your known sins so you can partake with a pure heart. I think we often come to Christ with our list of sins that we did that week and He listens and says to us… what did you say? We continue with our confession and then He stops us and says… what did you do? I don’t remember that.
The truth is when we come to communion, our sins and lawless deeds are remembered no more. Instead, what Jesus notices is that we are still conscious of our sinfulness and not conscious of His righteousness. He notices we are still living under the shadow of the Law instead of living in the shadow of the cross. Next time you take communion, I want you to meditate on two things. (1) Meditate on the reality that the Lord is YOUR God. You have access to Him anytime you want day or night. He loves His people and you are His people. (2) Meditate on the reality that He saved you and delivered you from bondage to sin – PAST TENSE. It is finished. According to Jesus, we who believe in Him are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. We are not defined by our sin and we are not bound by our sin. We are free to love Jesus fully and completely. Let that sink in and watch it change your life.
Roxie and I are praying for you…
