The passage in Isaiah (3:1-15) reminded us again that God alone is the One Who provides bread and water – and all things that we need for our daily sustenance. These are the essentials of life and nutrition, of the beginning and the continuation of life. And so we are told to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread.”
At this Table we also find wine – the drink of finished work, the drink of rest and relaxation and fellowship and celebration – when the work is done.
And so we find Water, Bread, and Wine – all from the Lord, all a part of the sacraments – all memorials to the Lord’s gift of life, of adoption, of growth and maturation, and glory. Come and partake of life and glory. You who have received the Water of Life, come and partake of the Bread and Wine of life.
