Devotional Thoughts for Pesaha - April 21, 2011

The new covenant in the blood of our Lord
(H.G. Mathews Mar Barnabas)

May I explain the importance of the Holy Eucharist (Holy Qurbana) celebrated by our Lord before His self-sacrifice on the cross. 

There are two important aspects connected with it. 1) Through the Holy Qurbana we receive our Lord into us. 2) We make a dedication to lead a godly life. It is the new covenant that we make with God. 

Let us see how we make this covenant with God. In the book of Exodus chapter 24, we find how a covenant was made between the Israelites and God. This is the old covenant. This covenant which God made with the Israelites was the covenant He made at Mount Sinai as recorded in the book of Exodus.
