Welcome at the Table

“Welcome at the Table”
 
This past Sunday, we celebrated World Communion Sunday together as a church family.  Of course, we were not alone; people from all corners of the world gathered around the Table of the Lord in their own areas. People with all sorts of experiences.  People who have hardly anything to call their own, and people who have more than they can manage.  People who are rule-followers as well as those who have broken the rules a few times and have suffered the consequences of their actions.  People with various colors of skins, some with body art and others with multiple piercings, those with a variety of different lifestyles; but regardless of who we are and what we have done in life, when we come to the Table of the Lord, we receive equal amounts of love and forgiveness, because we are all equal in the eyes of the Lord.  Jesus died for each one of us.  He didn’t die more for this one and less for that one.  Jesus loves us all the same.  No one is more special, more forgiven, or more loved than we are when we gather together around the Table. I don’t know about you, but I find that refreshing!  Isn’t it awesome to know that when we gather around the Table of the Lord as we did Sunday, and as we will do in a few more days, we are accepted and welcome to come just as we are?  I am grateful that God has reminded us all that we are equal and special in His eyes.  Have a great week, my brothers and sisters in Christ!!
