Prepared to Eat and Drink

We have prepared our hearts and turned from our sins. When we do this, turning to the Father through the perfect Lamb of God, His Son, we have bold confidence that He hears and receives us. We stand in His presence fully absolved of all our sins and come to Him with the eager expectation of blessing.
         Our entire worship service, from the beginning call, to confession, to hearing the Word, to the seating at the Lord’s Table and the commissioning into the world is a renewal of covenant between God and us. We acknowledge our utter dependence upon Him in all things and He receives us as His own. In this way, God is glorified and He lifts us up in that glory. So, let us eat and drink before Him in peace and blessing.
