The Way of Union

Text: Mark 14:12-26
Rev. John Downs

In science, an emulsifier is a substance that can bring together two normally incompatible substances.  In our life of faith, the cross of Christ functions as an “emulsifier” for us as it brings together a holy God and sinful, rebellious people.  God prepares us for this union by calling us to flee from sin and his wrath.  At the same time, we run toward God’s gracious provision for us in Christ.  What’s more, union with Christ brings us into union with his people.
