我们时时更新自己委身的誓愿,特别是当我们聚集在主的圣餐桌旁的时候;今天的聚集,就象我们的先贤列祖一样,我们既喜乐又庄严地要更新那曾联系他们与上帝如今也要更新我们与上帝联系的约。 让我们现在纪念上帝的恩惠,以及他呼召的指望,在他圣灵的光照下察验自己,使我们能看到自已在信仰上和行为上所犯的过错,一面思想这圣约所包含的一切意义,重新将自己奉献给上帝。


Dearly beloved, the Christian life to which we are called is a life in Christ, redeemed from sin by Christ, and through Christ consecrated to God. Upon this life we have entered, having been admitted into that new covenant of which our Lord Jesus Christ is mediator, and which he sealed with his own blood, that it might stand forever.

On one side the covenant is God’s promise to fulfil, in and through us, all that God declared in Christ Jesus, who is the Author and Perfector of our faith. That God’s promise still stands we are sure, for we have known God’s goodness, and proved God’s grace in our lives day by day.

On the other side we stand pledged to live no more unto ourselves, but to Christ who loved us and gave himself for us, and has called us to serve him that the purpose of his coming might be fulfilled.

From time to time, we renew our vows of consecration, especially when we gather at the Lord’s Table: but on this day we meet expressly, as generations of our forebears have met, that we may joyfully and solemnly renew the covenant which bound them and binds us to God.

Let us then, remembering the mercies of God and the hope of his calling, examine ourselves by the light of His Spirit, that we may see where we have failed or fallen short in faith and practice, and, considering all that this Covenant means may give ourselves anew to God.
