we have this right and Covenant Renewal leads to an end – here – at the Lord’s
Table – then the work of the Word preached and sung and heard and spoken and
sung more – leads us to a particular hunger – a hunger for the Word.
When our hearts are renewed by the Spirit, it is not that desire is
eliminated.Instead it is rightly
directed, so that our desire for fellowship leads to the eternal communion of
the Trinity – and for us to enjoy that communion with the Trinity – here at the
hopes – all of them – are directed for the honor to go to the glory of God; our
search for knowledge is directed for that knowledge to be revealed to the glory
of God; our hunger for food is directed for food that is from heaven and that
is enjoyed to the glory of God.This is
the communion table.This is the
fellowship of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit – and it is a
renewal – a renewal of our, the body of Christ, a renewal of our faith, hope
and love – and of desires satisfied again – only at one place, here – with the
Word of God.
