Trinity is evident at the Lord’s Table.
We are summoned to the Table by God the Father, we partake of the
elements of the once-for-all sacrificed Lamb of God, and we do so by the work
of the Holy Spirit.
is the Spirit by which we partake of Christ by faith here at the Table. God would not have us go through a lifeless
ritual – rather, here, the means of grace is placed before us. But it will be useless unless God’s Spirit does
His work. It is the same with the
preaching of the Word. Word and
Sacrament. Both are instruments which
God uses and commands us to use as His church.
But both require His active work with them in the hearts of the hearers,
in the hearts of the partakers. And He
promises to do so here and now. Come and
welcome to Jesus Christ.
