At the table of Jesus

Exodus 40,4 And thou shalt bring in the table, and set in order the things that are to be set in order upon it; and thou shalt bring in the candlestick, and light the lamps thereof.

The Christian life is the most wonderful life; one full of blessings already and has the promise of eternal life. IN Jesus Christ we have protection for He is the Rock, and we receive everything that we need from Him. Jesus Christ is not only reigning as Lord, but is also a father who cares for His own. What does the Word tell us in regards to our sitting at the table of the Lord, and what can we expect to find on this table laid before us?

There is no condemnation there for you {Romans 8,1}.
There you are free from the law {Romans 7,6}.
You are near to God {Ephesians 2,13).
You are free from the power of evil {Colossians 1,13).
You are an important part in the kingdom of God {Col. 1,13).
You are justified {Romans 5,1).
You are perfect {Hebrews 10, 14).
You have been adopted {Romans 3,13).
You can come into the presence of God at anytime {Eph. 2, 18).
You are part of the priesthood (1. Peter 2,9).
You will never be forsaken (Hebrews 13,5).
You possess an incorruptible inheritance (1.Peter 1,4).
You have received life with Christ {Colossians 3,4},
participation in the rights of the saints (Ephesians 2,6),
in suffering (2. Tim. 2,12) and in serving {l.Cor. 1,9}.
These are the advantages of following Jesus!
