Celebrating our Glorious Liberation: An Invitation to receive Holy Communion

We are invited to come to this Sacred Table by our Lord himself. The Lord Jesus on the night he was betrayed shared the Passover meal with his disciples during this time he instituted this meal as a sign of the New Covenant.

It is because of his grace that we can come freely knowing that our sins are forgiven through what the Lord Jesus accomplshed through his death and resurrection.

We come to this table knowing that the way has been made to come into the very presence of God, the Israelites passed through the Red Sea and the River Jordan because God had made the way for them, how much greater is the love and grace that is shown to us in the death of Christ. so we look back with assurance knowing that he has finished the work of salvation for us.

The people of Israel had to depend upon the Lord to guide, direct and provide for them as they went on their wilderness journey, we too are called upon to seek the Lord for his grace which is on display before us today. we are called to this table to receive the bread of life in a fresh way today.

As the Lord leads his people through the wilderness to the promised land, he reminds us today that one day He will come back again to make all things new. On that great day we will enter the eternal promised land from which no man can expel us because we will be in the presence of the Lord God Almighty.

So let us come to this table with gratitude in our hearts and praise on our lips to receive again the grace we need.

David Rollings was born in Luton in1949 and raised by my Christian parents in the Gospel Standard Strict Baptist denomination( Hyper-Calvinistic} in the sixties I rebelled against this background and got involved in left-wing politics. I became a Christian in 1969 and soon started reading Francis Schaeffer's books and came to embrace a Christian Worldview. I had the privilege of being on the staff of L'Abti Fellowship from1975 - 1979. After L'abri I studied at London School of Theology where I gained my BA.(1983) A few years later I studied for my MA by distance learning with The Nazarene Theological College Manchester (1999) For the last 25 years, I have been an elder of Shoreham-by-Sea Baptist Church.
