A God Who Feasts Us

Abraham sets a feast for three strangers.  Fine flour.  Veal.  Fresh butter and whole milk.  This was no small deal.

It is the same with God, who will set us a feast of choice pieces of meat.  Well-aged and refined wine.  Not the cheap stuff, but that $400 bottle that’s been aging for 10 years.  We can barely imagine the glory, the delights, the holiness of that feast of consummation with Christ our bridegroom.

Right now we have just a token of that great feast, but it is enough to sustain us.  God is open-hearted toward us, welcoming us into His Triune fellowship. He is generous beyond measure.  He sacrifices His own Son, eager to welcome you home.  So come to Him now.  Thank Him. Praise Him.  Rejoice in God’s kindness to you.


Isaiah 25:6-8

    And in this mountain
    The LORD of hosts will make for all people
    A feast of choice pieces,
    A feast of wines on the lees,
    Of fat things full of marrow,
    Of well-refined wines on the lees.
    7      And He will destroy on this mountain
    The surface of the covering cast over all people,
    And the veil that is spread over all nations.
    8      He will swallow up death forever,
    And the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces;
    The rebuke of His people
    He will take away from all the earth;
    For the LORD has spoken.
