Not just for our kind

We are keen to fence the Lord’s Table, here. That means we want unbelievers and unrepentant hypocrites to not take bread and wine, because they will be eating and drinking judgment on themselves.

But it is also important that we make clear that ANY believer is welcome at this table. Not just the Calvinists, the homeschoolers, the infant baptizers. Not just those who feel good about their obedience this week, not just those free of their besetting sins. We don’t justify ourselves. We’re here because we know we need Jesus Christ to do that. So come and lay down your sin and failure before Him. Pick up the bread and wine instead. That’s the great trade God offers you. Give Him your guilt and He’ll give you grace.
