Jesus tied every celebration of communion, that we do in remembrance of Him—to a future day when we are safely and finally home (Matthew 26:29). So each time we gather for the Lord’s Supper, we should think about that day when we get to sit at communion, served by Jesus Christ Himself.
Standing Before The Throne
To get ready for the greatest celebration of communion ever, join me in Romans 14:10b-12
“. . . For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. 11 For it is written: “As I live, says the Lord, Every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall confess to God.” 12 So then each of us shall give an account of himself to God.”
What will matter when you stand alone right in front of Jesus?
What do you wish to have in your hands to give to the One who loved you and gave Himself for you?
Whatever that is – that is what we need to live for TODAY!
At the end of his life the great Reformer and servant of the Lord, Martin Luther shared what kept him going through such lifelong adversity and hardships. He said he lived by this simple truth:
“I have but two dates on my calendar today and the day of the judgment seat of Christ!”
In other words, he lived each day like he was on his way to explain what he did with his life to the One who gave him life – Jesus Christ.
Are you ready? Our future is all about the little choices we make that reveal what we really are in the sight of God.
Will you come with me to that Throne? Will you let the Holy Scriptures transport you out of this world and into God’s?
Watch with me as God pulls back the veil. Through John’s eyes in Revelation, we see Heaven as he seems to rise on the wings of angels to get his guided tour of Heaven. His inspired words portray for us a scene of angels—hundreds of millions of angels—“ten thousand times ten thousand”—all clustered about the smooth crystal sea that reflects awesome images from its mirror-like surface.
Our senses are besieged by so many different sensations. The colors of the materials surrounding God’s Throne are beyond description.
