I’ve been thinking more deeply about Ephesians 2:6 and being seated with Christ. Something I didn’t write about in Seated with Christ is the joy of the banquet and how much we read in scripture about the value of food and feasting together at the table.
I recently ordered the book, The Lifegiving Table, by Sally Clarkson, and it has reinvigorated my love of feasting with family and friends as a representation of something eternal, heavenly, and valued by God.
So I set out the wedding crystal that I never use. I arrange the happy bowls of crisp salad, warm rolls, and a pan of spinach lasagna. We gather together, share stories, and enjoy feasting. It’s a shadow of what’s to come. This feasting brings so much joy.
And we’ll do it again tonight.
