Jesus braced his disiples for rejection by the world. But then, He sent them out into it, knowing they would be rejected. Because that is what Jesus Himself did. We come here to this table as the world's rejects. And that is just fine with us because we are Christ's redeemed. Nobody likes rejection. But it's a little easier to take when we know it is inevitable, and we know we are on the right side. The table draws the line. Nobody should eat and drink who rejects Christ. Everyone who accepts Him, who accepts the rejection of the world with Him, should eat and drink.
