As followers of Christ, we are recipients of a new covenant. Christ has bought us with his blood and sealed our salvation for all of eternity. As a result of each of us being in Christ, we are also members of a new community.
In a very real sense, we belong to one another. The covenant that unites us to God also unites us to one another. This separates the church, the body of Christ, from any other institution, organization, club, or relationship that we might have.
In this sermon series, Pastor David Platt teaches us how the church is a covenant community marked by baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We have an eternal bond with one another. In God’s covenant with us, He has designed a covenant community that will display his character to a watching world.
