As we see and taste the bread as the sinless, broken body of our Lord, as we see and taste the wine as the atoning blood of our Savior, our right response is praise, praise for deliverance.
Therefore, the gift of faith is, in a sense spiritually, a gift of life, health, sight, and deliverance, in which we are the blessed recipients of God’s grace, recipients who marvel at such gracious favor from today and forever.
Though the storms of life rage around us, we serve the Son of Man. We worship the King who has everlasting dominion. We are dependent upon the One who rebukes the winds and the sea, and in Him there is great calm. He is the Lord Jesus Christ, demanding discipleship, demanding dependence, and demanding deliverance.
