Come to the Feast

Through the prophet Isaiah the Lord promised a day of peace and joy in which he himself would provide a banquet of life for all peoples.

On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples
a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine,
of rich food full of marrow, of aged wine well refined. (Isaiah 25:6)

When the Lord gave of himself in the person of his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, he called upon all men to seek true food.

Do not labor for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. (John 6:27)

That true food was none other than Christ himself.

I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. (John 6:35)

Wisdom invites us to this feast this Lord's Day. Come to know the Holy One. Come to know true life.
