Don’t give the enemy a seat at your table. If we’re not focussed on God, if we don’t focus on him, we’ll be veiled and obscured. The devil wants to take you away from the food and sustenance that is Jesus. Jesus wants us to invite our enemies to his table. He is the good shepherd we started with Psalm 23. We’d shouldn’t be in want Jesus provides everything we need.
We live in an angry world where much is wrong and we are right. That is the time we really need Jesus , we need to focus on the author and perfector of our faith. Not listen to the prowling roaring lion that is the devil as described in 1 peter 5:8.
God will destroy the shroud that entangled us,the sheet that covers us, So that we can see clearly the love that Jesus brings. The enemies do not want us to have the joy that Jesus brings. People don’t know about it. God wants to say here I am feast on me I am the bread of life.
He is a god of mercy and grace but also of justice. We need to focus on him. His Invite, The Invite is to all is to eat at the table.
Yvette shared the thought she had been given that this is the second time recently people have been drawn to preach on this so we’re clearly still not getting the message. She believes it is because some of us come around the table but we’re not eating. He wants you to eat it all not just pick at it in a terribly British way!
