His Friends to the Table

In the meal before His greatest battle, Jesus called His friends to Himself, set a table for them, and gave them bread and wine.  He told them He was grateful to share in that particular meal with them.  Table fellowship is sweet, but that night, a particular blessing was to be enjoyed around that Table – a blessing that would change the world forever.

Jesus gave His life that night to His friends; friends who would betray Him, friends who would desert Him, friends who would deny Him.  These were friends who did not yet understand what He was doing, what was going to be accomplished, and what it would cost Him.

Jesus did not call friends to this Table who had it all right, who understood everything, who had obeyed Him or would obey Him perfectly after coming to that Table.  He simply called those who were His friends.  Are you His friend?  Have you been baptized into His friendship?  Have you come to know Jesus, the Son of God, the Savior of the world, as friend.  Then come and welcome to Jesus Christ.
