Peace at the Table

God calls us to peace with Him.  He shows us this at the Lords supper, the New Testament peace offering, where God gives us back part of the sacrificed offering for us to eat in his presence.  Jesus is the fulfillment of this sacrifice.  He made for us our peace with God, and we receive Jesus Himself in this communion.

Let us be careful to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace.  At the family table, you can find all kinds of things to fuss at others about.  But we put aside contention and selfishness.  We do the hard work, the Gospel driven work, the spirit enabling work, of abiding, remaining, staying in the presence of Christ. And in the presence of one another.

Receive and rest on Christ alone today.
