Communion Meditation…

You Will Eat the Best from the Land

“Come now, let us reason together,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the best from the land; but if you resist and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword.” For the mouth of the LORD has spoken. – Isaiah 1:18-20

Forgiveness. The LORD offers us forgiveness. His offer is conditional. “If you are willing and obedient” contrasts with “if you resist and rebel.”

One path leads to plenty of the best from the land. The other leads to being devoured by the sword.

Feast or famine. Both are set before us. Which will we choose? If we elect to come and reason together with the Lord, we will enjoy the feast.

That is why we are at this Table. God has called us to the table. As His children, we have come to eat with Him and He with us.

The Lord Himself is the host at this feast. He is also the meal, as we eat His body and drink His blood. We do not merely remember Him (though we do that as we eat). We also partake of Him, of His body and of His blood.

Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. – (John 6:53)

How have I come to the Table? In my heart, am I proud and rebellious? Do I resist Him when He whispers, “Take up your cross and follow Me”? Or do I come willingly and obediently?

The answer will determine if I will eat of the best of the land, of the tree of life – or if only destruction is waiting for me.

Is this Supper a present foretaste of heaven? Or do I eat and drink damnation to my soul?

  1. This Supper to me is a foretaste of heaven filled with the very best and of which I am tasting just a small part here on earth. God Bless
