at the Table is a privilege which is given to us individually. If you have been baptized into the Lord
Jesus, then you are summoned here to this Table to partake – and communion with
the Lord at this Table is a great blessing for each one who comes and does so.
But there is another aspect of partaking here – and it is not an individual
partaking. The Bride of Christ is here
as well, partaking of the meal with her Bridegroom. We are the bride of Christ, but only
corporately, only as we are bound together as one body in the Lord Jesus
We are celebrating and remembering and communing in what Christ has done over
all the world over all of history and into all of the future. We are remembering a story and entering into
a story and perpetuating the Story into the future – a future which is ours to
enjoy together in Christ. Come and
partake; come and tell that story; come and welcome to Jesus Christ.
