Coffee Talk for Wednesday, June 10, 2015
Today’s Focus is: The Covenant
Carefully prepared just for you by your friend, Julie Marie White
Blessing:

Father, today I stand before You overwhelmed by my short comings and burdened by my inabilities. You... who are Master and Maker, Alpha and Omega, both the Beginning and the End... who am I that You should know my name? Yet I know that You not only care to know my name but You care enough to number the hairs of my head. Thank You Lord. Your goodness is far beyond anything that this world could ever comprehend.

Daily Bread:

“Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant.”

Hebrews 9:15 ESV

Main Course:

Once you have entrusted your life to Jesus you are ready to take the second step toward being God’s princess. It’s an action of receiving through faith everything Christ has for you and your new identity. Salvation can be compared to a marriage covenant. There are several important symbols that lead us through becoming one with Christ. We will highlight a few.

The wedding ceremony is a public profession of your commitment to your spouse. It communicates to all who witness it that you have pledged yourself to each other. From that moment, you are observed and viewed as married and are held accountable to be faithful to your partner. The exchange of rings serves as a reminder and evidence of your promise to each other. The act of the bride taking the name of her groom demonstrates that she has the authority to represent him and access to all that he has.

In the covenant of salvation, the wedding ceremony is represented by water baptism. Water baptism is prophetic as it represents becoming united with Christ through dying to who you were and resurrecting with him into a new creation.

Please Read Romans 6:1-11 NIV

How are you united with Christ in his death and resurrection? 6:3

What are you to consider yourself dead to? Alive to? 6:11

Another symbolic event is the exchanging of rings. In salvation this is represented by being sealed with the Holy Spirit, which is an outward indication of who you belong to and your unity with Christ.

Have you ever noticed something different about someone who is an authentic Christian?

The Holy Spirit is evident in his or her life and the Spirit glorifies God. It’s like seeing someone with a beautiful wedding ring. You are left with the feeling that she is loved and adored by her husband.

Please Read Ephesians 1:13-14 NIV

What were you marked with? 1:13

At the end of a wedding ceremony the minister will pronounce the couple to be husband and wife. The ceremony is concluded with an introduction to the witnesses as Mr. and Mrs. His Last Name. The two are now one. When you enter into a covenant with Christ, you become one and receive his name. This is significant because through this covenant you have the right to invoke the name of Jesus for healing and authority over the enemy.

Please Read Mark 16:15-18 NIV

How does a believer cast out devils? 16:17

Why didn’t the sons of Sceva have authority over the demons?
