thing a penitential Psalm like Psalm 38 should do for us, should cause us to
remember, is that we are not to come to the Lord’s Table and turn towards some
kind of morbid introspection because we are such sinners and could never really
be holy enough to come to this meal.We should
come to this Table as repentant and repenting sinners, as forgiven sinners, as
bold sinners, bold to come for mercy because this is a feast of mercy – just what
we need – just what we were summoned to come and receive.
is our salvation.Jesus is our
holiness.Jesus is our
sanctification.We did not purchase
ourselves and now we are presenting our purchased selves to Him.He purchased us and so He has the right, not
us, to bring us to this Table, to bring us to Himself.And here is the good news – He wants to.Come and welcome to Jesus Christ.
