Enter in!

After preaching Matthew 19, on entering the kingdom, at the Lord's Table:

This table is for those who have entered the kingdom. It defines who belongs to Christ by acting out receiving bread and wine from Him. He seeks to bless all those who receive Him. You are in His house, His temple. You have washed at the basin of baptism. You have offered up sacrifices of repentance for sin and sacrifices offering your whole self to God as you sang, prayed and heard God’s Word. Now comes the peace offering, where you have part of your sacrifice returned to you to eat before the Lord, so you know His good favor and fellowship with you. Jesus is the sacrifice. He offered himself up to God for your sin, and He is now given back to you to take hold of in faith. Join with Him. Partake of Him. Enter His kingdom.
