To the Fearful Hearted

We focused on Isaiah 35:5-6 and now as we come to the Table, hear the verses just preceding it.  “Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees.  Say to those who are fearful hearted, “Be strong, do not fear!  Behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God; He will come and save you.”

That is what we celebrate at the Table.  This is not a morose time of introspection.  It is a time to say, “God saved me.  Jesus loves me.  I am a part of the family of God because He came with a vengeance and freed me.”  It is a precious time for all who are in Christ, marked by their baptism, to come and sing with joy using lips that never would have enjoyed such giving of praise – to do so at the Table of Grace, the Sacrifice of Thanksgiving, the Body and Blood of the Son of God.  Let Him come again, anew, to you, to us, and strengthen weak hands, firm feeble knees, and calm the fearful hearted.  He has saved you.  Come and welcome to Jesus Christ.
