Devotional for Thursday Jan 23, 2014: Blessings at God's Table
You prepare a meal for me
in front of my enemies.
Pause and envision the scene in [God's] royal dining room....
Driven not by our beauty but by his promise, he calls us to himself and invites us to take a permanent place at his table.... We take our place next to the other sinners-made-saints and we share in God's glory.
May I share a partial list of what awaits you at his table?
You are beyond condemnation (Rom. 8:1).
You are a member of his kingdom (Col. 1:13).
You have been adopted (Rom. 8:15).
You have access to Gad at any moment (Eph. 2:18).
You will never be abandoned (Heb. 13:5).
You have an imperishable inheritance (1 Pet. 1:4)
In the Grip of Grace
