Already New Creation

We are here in the New Creation. We are new. We have that already but we are not yet fully new, we are not perfect and so we have an acute sense of our need for continued grace and mercy. We are perhaps more aware of the NOT YET part of our condition than the ALREADY part. But at the Lord's Table we should focus on the ALREADY. 

Jesus has already died for our sins. Jesus has already arisen from the dead and we have risen with Him. Jesus has already ascended to the right hand of the Father and we are already seated with Him in the heavenlies. The Father is already well pleased with His glorified Son and in Him, He is well pleased with us. The Spirit is already among and in God’s people. And all of this is already declared and promised to you here today, you who are new creatures in the new creation in Jesus Christ.
