“Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!” (Revelation 19:9)
On a transfigured earth, where perfect communion
with God will have become a reality through bodily transfiguration, Jesus will once more, as at the Last Supper
, break the bread of blessing for His redeemed and give them the cup of thanksgiving. Once more, He will be the giver and minister, and His own once more will be the recipients who, through eating and drinking, will receive the gift of God’s salvation—eternal life. Jesus the host will serve the meal and sit down with His welcomed guests. Then, all the ransomed of God will be safe, to sin no more
Be challenged by Romans
Romans doesn’t let us sit still. In Romans, Paul talks about the obligation we are under to spread the truth of the Gospel and to engage with the culture around us. He talks about the journey we must make after we accept the God’s gift of salvation. We are called to leave our comfortable and easy corners and spread the message of Christ’s sacrifice to everyone around us, because we have been freely justified!
