Johnny Baker posted the following from another blog. I found it an excellent refection on further implications of the Lord’s Supper.
When we take the Lord?s Supper, we aren?t just agreeing to a theological principle or performing a dutiful act of remembrance like laying flowers on a grave. The Lord?s Supper is a many-layered subversive and prophetic act that declares once and for all – the exile of God?s people is over. The kingdom of God has come and will culminate in a final feast where all the friends of Jesus, regardless of class, race, gender, or nationality will sit at his table. Israel is – not a proud, pure, triumphant nation – but a rag-tag band of sinners living in the grace of God. That?s who we are and that?s why we bother with the Lord?s Supper.
I especially found, Israel is – not a proud, pure, triumphant nation – but a rag-tag band of sinners living in the grace of God., heartening. Indeed we who are the people of God must live in the grace of God!
