is not a time to pretend that Jesus has not yet come. It is a time to prepare for and in
celebration – as we do at this Table. In
the Lord’s Supper there is no denying that Jesus came and that His body was broken
and His blood shed – for us.
so, as we go about our Christmas preparations, reflections, and celebrations,
this is the center – this Table. It is
our participation in Christ, it is our union and communion with Him. God took on flesh and blood and dwelt with
men. To come here with faith and partake
is to celebrate Advent, and Christmas, and Good Friday, and Resurrection
Sunday. It is to celebrate Christ in us,
the hope of glory.
