Atonement

Matthew 26:28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

After Judas left to betray Jesus the atmosphere of the Passover changed. Jesus lifted up the cup of atonement and said the atonement was through His blood. We are to drink of the cup of atonement as a symbol of what Jesus did for us. The disciples couldn’t understand. Their idea of a Messiah was a conqueror who would overthrow the tyranny of the Romans. Jesus, the Messiah came to overthrow the tyranny of mankind’s sin. It is only through His blond that sin can be forgiven and mankind can be redeemed back into the creation God made. Judas didn’t drink of that cup. We must be careful when we drink of that cup. Each time we drink we must first repent (turn away) from our sins through confession. Hopefully today, Thursday, we will go to a church service and remember, confess and thank God with passion for what He has done for us. Drink of Him.
