Ephesians 2:13 - "Now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ."
God is so good to us. His provision is rich. Not only does He give us clear truth in His Word, He also gives us His people to live among, so we can see a variety of angles to the same Gospel of grace. He pictures the gospel of grace and peace for us in sacraments of cleansing and feeding. Here at His Table we see God’s grace. We don’t deserve a place at this table, but He has set us here anyway, because He wants to. He wants us with Him in fellowship and peace. We see His peace toward us. You don’t give people food too fast if you’re not at peace with them. God shows His peace to us, accomplished at the cross and proven at the resurrection. God shows His peace to us here at His table. Christ Himself is our peace, and here we commune with Him.
