The holidays are a special time for me and many people. I am reminded of times when our family would gather at my grandparents house. All the cousins would play in the yard while the adults prepared a meal for the whole crew. When the meal was prepared, someone would call out to us kids, “Come and get it, the table is ready”. We also ran as fast as we could. The spread was always so delicious. Regardless of how many people were present, there was always enough to go around.
When I read in Ps 23:5 that, “the shepherd has prepared a table for us in the presence of our enemies,” I can only imagine what is on that table. We see in 1 Thes 5:23, that we are “Spirit, Soul and Body”. I have to believe that the Lord’s table is set with delicious items that will benefit the whole man. For the spirit of man there is cleansing from sin, for the soul of man there is restoration and for man’s body there is healing.
As you read this if your need cleansing, come to the table, if your soul need restoration, come to the table, if you need healing in your body, come to the table. Don’t delay, run as fast as you can. But no worries there is plenty enough for everyone.
I trust you will have a great holiday season.
