you come to the Table, you come to
Christ’s body and blood. And when you
come to the Table, you come with
Christ’s body and blood. You are to
discern the Lord’s body and that means you are to look around you and see the
body of the Lord – in the person over there that you think is really odd, or
the person over there that you have an attitude about, or that other person whom
you think you would never really want to be with.
we are reconciled to Christ, we are part of the reconciliation of the world
where the strangest of relationships will take place. The wolf will lie down with the lamb, the
leopard with the young goat, the calf and the lion, and so on. What are we learning? We are learning that in Christ, we are
enabled and called to love our brothers and sisters and even enjoy being with
them. We are to see Christ in them. We are to allow them to see Christ in us.
Coming to the Table is a communal event.
This is not your little, personal devotional time with Jesus. Look up and around you – who are you eating
with? You are eating with Christ. Look – there is His body. Now partake and then go live like it the rest
of the week.
