The Long Table

We call Communion, The Lord’s Table. We should not confuse His Table with this little short one we have up here. The Lord’s Table is not short. His Table is long, long enough for an infinity of individuals. It stretches as far as grace, which stretches much farther than sin.
         Many of you have long tables in your homes. You need long tables for your many children, friends and relatives. As the Lord blesses, you will need more leaves to add your grandchildren and great grandchildren. The Table just gets longer and longer.

         God’s Table is like that. He keeps adding places for those whom He welcomes. His long Table is always growing longer and you who are gathered here, and your children and your grandchildren and your great grandchildren are welcome to come and eat with Jesus, even to a thousand generations.
