In the Old Covenant, God spoke to His people through the prophets. He gave them laws that were written on stony tablets (Exodus 20). They were to receive happiness by following His laws. This made them His people, and He their God. In the New Covenant, God became flesh by taking a human (John 1:14) and sacrificed His life to save us from sin (Matthew 26:27-28). Furthermore, He feeds us with the bread and wine, which are His sacrificial flesh (John 6:51) and blood of the New Covenant (Luke 22:20) so that we may have Eternal Life (John 6:54). In doing this He puts His life into us. This imprints His Words on our hearts (Jer. 31:33) to change our stony heart to natural one (Ezekiel 11:19). This means that believers follow God’s laws, not because they are laws, but because, they are the desires of their heart. In other words, their heart desires what God desires. This celebration of the Lord’s Supper is the wedding feast of the Lamb (Revelation 5:6) in which Christ unites with His Bride (His people) (Ephesians 5:25-32) and His people form one body by sharing the bread (1 Cor. 10:16-17). This sacrifice is celebrated daily from the rising of the sun even to the going down, in every place (Malachi 1:11). By partaking in this meal we establish a very intimate spousal communion with Christ (John 6:56) in which we join our selves to the Lord, thereby making us spiritually one with Him (1 Cor. 6: 17).

Is not this more than just a personal relationship? Its beyond a personal relationship! Absolutely! Thank you, Jesus, for this constant reminder that we desire to follow and abide by His commandments and our spiritual oneness with you, Lord, is profound.
