Let us focus on this moment
The Moment before Us—
Chase two rabbits, and both will escape.
“Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:
But one thing is needful” —Luke 10: 41, 42
I am conflicted over the Lord’s supper. I don’t know whether I cry for sadness. or I cry for happiness. Both are involved with my sin and my salvation. Preaching in the Temple, Peter tells the people that God had lifted up His son, Jesus, to turn the people from their sinful ways—
Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers . . . Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities —Acts 3: 25, 26
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up—James 4:10
Remember, the story of the Lord’s supper is about Jesus, but the message is about us.
