In the story of the Prodigal son, when he returns, the Father says, “Luke 13:22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. 23 And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry; 24 for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ And they began to be merry."
While this Table is the Table of the Lord and our attention is first focused upon Him, He would have you look around at the body of Christ, His body, these brothers and sisters. This Table is in honor of them. For they were once dead and are now alive. They were once lost and now are found. Jesus would have you come to this Table to honor them – your brothers and sisters in Jesus – for that is what He is doing. And He would have you be merry.
