“And he did the same with the cup after supper, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.”

Luke 22:20

A NEW COVENANT FOR HUMANKIND

Easter is the remembrance of Jesus’ great sacrifice for humankind. Through the risen Christ, believers have the forgiveness of sin and a new life. An eternal life that through our repentance, we have a life of second chances. A life with a new covenant from God. The risen Christ sanctifies us and redeems us. On the cross, Jesus’ bore all our sins and absorbed our pain. The cross created a new life for us and created a great flower for humanity called Easter. Through the trials of his final week, called the Passion week, Jesus modeled the life of the perfect disciple, one that walks without fear and serves humankind and not the self. Our destinies with God may at times require a similar and difficult walk, fear not God is with us. God through Jesus walked the path of life before us.

Points of Reflection
