Table of Grace and Blessing

 This morning we have considered the Lord’s appearing to Zacharias and how He took away the reproach not only of Elizabeth but of Israel. We have inherited that blessing. Whereas, we were by nature objects of wrath, the Lord, through the shed blood of Jesus, has brought us to this table of grace and blessing. In our own strength, we were doomed to fail and could not bring about the conditions for our own salvation. But thanks be to God, that at the right time, the Lord sent the forerunner, John, and then His own dear Son, born of a Virgin, to call us to repentance and to save us from our sins.
         We are no longer in our reproach. We have been rescued, healed, saved, and blessed as dear children of the most holy God and King. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? I am convinced that no one and nothing shall be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus. So, let us rejoice as we eat and drink of God’s great salvation.
