Communion Meditation (8) – The Feast in the Kingdom

Many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. – Matthew 8:11

The feast in the Kingdom of God is a time of joyous fellowship at the Table God prepares for His people.

Bread and WineThink of who is there:

  • At the Last Supper Jesus told His disciples that He would not drink the cup with them again – until the kingdom comes. Jesus is at the Table.
  • I am here at the Table participating with Christ’s people and showing we are all one body because of the one loaf. All of the redeemed are at the Table.
  • In Matthew 8:11, Jesus declares that I take my place at the Table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom. Is this only in heaven? Are these among the “great cloud of witnesses” who surround me even now (Hebrews 12:1)?
  • Hebrews 12:22 suggests that even “thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly” are with me as I come to Mount Zion, the heavenly Jerusalem.

The Lord’s Supper today is a foretaste of the great banquet of God in Heaven. Already, I am sitting with Christ at the right hand of God in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 2:6). The joy of heaven is breaking into my life here on earth even now.

Why should I come to the Table as to a funeral?

Let my tears be tears of joy! Let this fellowship be a great family reunion where I reconnect with those who make me who and what I am.
