The Table of Power

We 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.

Here, 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.
