2.  Deliver From Slavery/Bondage

                   (Rom. 6:17-18)

                   17  But thanks be to God that you, having once been slaves of sin,


have become obedient from the heart to the form of teaching to which you were entrusted, 18  and that you, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.

24  He said to them, "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many. 25  Truly I tell you, I will never again drink of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God."


                   (Acts 20:7)....”On the first day of the week.....”      

                   (1 Cor. 10:16-17)

                   16  The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a sharing in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a sharing in the body of Christ?

17  Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread.

                   (1 Cor. 11:17ff)....come together...together as the church...etc
