Come To The Table
Speaker: Tom Leonard, September 22, 2019
37In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. (KJV)
7In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; 8Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; (KJV)
Come to the Table
God has a feast for us in Christ: We receive and celebrate the provision of Grace given us through Christ’s sacrifice.
‘Buy without money’ emphasizes that it is costly, but free to us in Christ! We cannot buy it for we are bankrupt spiritually.
1. Our need – the of our soul. Water, wine, milk, bread = staples of life, but also represent spiritual realities. e.g. Living water.
What are you hungering for? Thirsting for? What are you trying to fill it with? ! We may not understand exactly what our needs are – but that we are needy!
Jesus - John 7:37
*All the riches, promises and provisions are yea and amen in Christ and only in Christ, and are applied in us thru the Holy Spirit.
We have to know God’s provision in Christ-
2. God’s Provision – the _____________________ – herein is the living water, the gladdening wine, the nourishing milk, the satisfying bread! Grace – giving us everything we need though we have not earned it, nor do we deserve it.
