do not come to the Table in order to receive that which we have not yet
received. We come to the Table in order
to have opened for us, broken and poured out for us, that which we have
received. This is a place, a central
place, where the prayer that Paul is praying is answered. Here, wisdom and knowledge is given to
us. Or possibly more true than that,
here Wisdom and Knowledge gives us Christ, the power of His resurrection, which
is at the very same time already resident in us.
we are made full. And here, we are made
the fullness of Christ who fills all in all.
Here, we declare and manifest to ourselves, to one another and to the
world – we are the new Humanity, we are the new Creation, we are the ones bound
in union and communion with the Triune God.
And He has come, He has sent us, He is sending us, to fill the world by
His Word and Spirit. Come and welcome to
Jesus Christ, King of kings and Lord of lords.
