is the Table of life. It is the Table of
Communion with our Lord. But this is not
a Table where you will physically be stuffed with fat things and goblets of the
finest wines. You will simply take a
small piece of bread and a small cup of wine – for these are symbols, signs,
tokens, of what you are receiving by faith in the power of the Holy Spirit.
do not let tokens or signs distract or disappoint you. It is in the act of participating in this
ritual by faith that you really partake of the Lord Jesus and are really
nourished by Him – nourished in intimate communion with Him and also with this
body around you – the brothers and sisters He has shed His blood for.
is a Table of that perfect peace Isaiah mentioned. Stay your mind on Him, but do so by looking
around you and seeing His body – there, in your brother and sister – there – is
the peace of the Lord as well.
