Table Meditation: June 30, 2013…

Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

I want to take you through a fifteen-second description of God speaking through history. First we are going to glance across Genesis 1. Because…what does it say. It says God said “Let there be light” and there was light. God said “Let there be a firmament,” there was a firmament. ‘Let there be dry land…let there be plants…let there be fish…let there be animals…let there be birds. God speaks…and it happens.

God speaks through Moses…and takes his people out of Egypt. God speaks through His prophets…His prosecuting attorneys.

And then we get to Hebrews…

God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high…

And it goes on further in Hebrews and tells you that one of the reasons He is there is that He is ever interceding for us.

God has spoken. God continues to speak. Jesus speaks to His Father about us continually…

Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven.

He speaks to you here, brothers and sisters in Christ…through broken bread and poured out wine. All these things He says here, some or all of whichi some or all of us forgot at some point in time this week…all of those things He says to you…right here.

Paul writes this…

For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.

You proclaim to each other, you proclaim to yourselves, that which Christ proclaims to you…“Do Not Fear.”
