You open your heart to other people, to other stuff, to other ideas, and yet none of them is more important than Christ.
All of us, we eat every day, that’s true for most people here, if not everyone. So we know what food does, and we need to remember… just like good food nourishes and keeps your body going, Christ is the ultimate-food, but for your soul as well as your body!
When Christians take part in the Lord’s Supper, they start empty… they need Christ. But then as they take in the bread and the cup… they are refreshed in their souls. Christ is essential to them.
And yet perhaps you’re not a person who’s able to join us at the table because this table is only for Christians only for those who are married to Christ; if you are not able to come to him then may I urge you to change your mind.
You are a sinner and that by nature disqualifies you from Christ and yet we also know that Christ welcomes sinners, so if you want to come to Christ now, you can. Get married to him in the first place, before you begin your wedding-meal.
Yes, you do not deserve him, and yes, you are owed eternal hell. But put your trust in the Lord Jesus and his cross, and you will have life, and have it to the full.
