Last night as we gathered around the Lord’s Table, and given it was the 4th of July weekend, we thought some of how Jesus established the New Covenant in His blood at the table. And looking at that covenant as encompassing the “constitution” of the People of God, we compared the Declaration of INdependence, with how in Christ, at the Table, we ratify each time our Declaration of TOTAL Dependence. For we can contribute nothing to our salvation as it all rests in Christ alone. Following are the 4 slides we used. The 1st two drawing from what our earthly Founders penned, but then what a Declaration of Total Dependence might look like from the Lord’s People point of view. What a vast, infinite difference.
