If you, Lord, kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, so that we can, with reverence, serve you.Psalm 130:3-4
In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.Romans 8:37-39
This is a short, direct, simple, but critically important post. I want everyone to understand this message; I believe it is a life-changing and life-saving truth.
Jesus took the bread and the wine and he said – he says, “I’m doing this for you. Just come.”
Don’t let anyone tell you you’re not welcome. There is nothing – and no one – in all of creation (least of all a legalist) with the power to separate anyone from God’s love in Jesus!
So just show up! The simple act of approaching the communion table is enough. By coming we are in essence admitting both our need for grace and our willingness to receive it.
All around the world, together: all denominations, all races, Catholic and Protestant, all political leanings, staunch believers and the uncertain too. There is no limit to who can come because there is no limit to the scope, the wideness, of God’s mercy and love.
In love, grace, light, mercy, and promise – DEREK
