The Broken Wall
Before we partake of the Lord’s Supper this morning, let us refresh our minds as to the conditions we were in before our Lord was crucified. Ephesians 2:12 says that (1) we, as Gentiles, did not belong to the commonwealth of Israel; (2) we were strangers to the covenants of promise; (3) we were without hope for eternal rest; (4) we were without God.
But now, by the body and blood of our Lord given on the cross, that wall of partition between Jew and Gentile has been torn down. Now we have that hope and that promise. That’s why each first day of the week we meet around his table as a memorial to him until he comes.
