Food Takes Faith
"though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered."
Faith is basic to this table. Faith is always involved in food. If you buy it at the store, you trust those who produced it, and you probably don’t know them. If you produced it yourself, you know full well the level of faith the farmer needs. At this table we know the grower, we know how He made this bread and wine. How it was made is critical. No impurity in the process whatsoever, and it will never go stale or sour. Jesus was faithful to His Father, so we have food forever. How do we eat it? That is also important. We do this by faith:
My hope is built on nothing less, than Jesus’ blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
