“I am the Lord’s, and He is mine”; The blessed unity of the Church of the Lord is complete
February 14, 2020. (TLOTW).— Perfect Unity is the lasting effect of the Holy Supper. The Church in Los Angeles has now received the fulfillment of the words of Christ, “He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him.” This act is a renovation of the covenant which the Lord sealed upon the cross. Now the Church is perfectly ONE.
As one they announce that the redeeming sacrifice of Christ continues to be effective in this era. As one they remember that he died on the cross, but he also resurrected on the third day. Now, as the Choir’s hymn expressed, He’s reigning in glory. And the perfectly unified Church of the Living God, Pillar and Ground of the Truth, the Light of the World also announce the coming of the Lord.
After every member has partaken of the Holy Supper, the time comes when each of them will once again return to their homes, but with renewed strength to continue announcing the Gospel of Jesus Christ which has been revealed to His holy Apostles.
Before concluding the Holy Supper Service, the Church was invited to a special act of fraternity; They turned to each other, and embraced each other, wishing one another a safe and blessed journey home. Each in their own place will continue waving the flag of love and the banner of salvation.
