The Greatest Feast of All
Who doesn’t enjoy a fabulous feast buffet with so many choices of delicious foods! The long table is wonderfully pleasing to our eyes before we ever even get the food to our plate and then to the table. And then when we get the fork to our mouths, we want it to last and last because it tastes so good, but our poor stomachs just won’t hold any more. Have you ever had that feeling?
I listened to a wonderful description of the celebration of the greatest feast ever. I really thought you would also enjoy it, so I am giving you the link here to Joni Eareckson Tada’s beautiful description. The mp3 is only 4 minutes but it will change your perspective for a lifetime!
A couple of months ago, I shared the Intersection of 2 Special Passovers. It was one of my most popular blogs. If you didn’t get to read that blog you may want to go back and read it and get the free Passover Parallels chart. We received the gift of communion at a very special Passover celebration.
Just as Joni says, “…that word “feast” is a greatway to describe it, because the Lord’s Supper is a means of grace, when we come to Him in humility, acknowledging our sins and looking for help, and when we take the bread and wine, He imparts His own strength and spiritual life and He does so with extravagant abundance. Communion really does represent something big and abundant, because when Christ offered Himself as Passover, He poured out His mercy in a huge way. His is a banquet of grace, a buffet where you find joy, peace, kindness, courage, compassion, goodness, gentleness, self-control, patience, tenderness; how about perseverance, long-suffering, endurance and contentment, pleasure and so, so, so much more; never ending.”
May you enjoy this feast in an new way!
