Invited to the King’s Table-Invitado a la mesa del Rey



“In the east, to share a meal with someone is a symbol of peace, trust, brotherhood, and forgivness, the shared table is a shared life. When they extend a dinner invitation, they are saying, “come to my mikdash me-at , my miniature sanctuary, my dining-room table, and we will celebrata the most beautiful experience that life afford: friendship.””(Brennan Manning-A Glimpse of Jesus) Today we celebrated the Lord’s table, communion, Eucharistia; it was a time to invite everybody to the table as an invitation of a man who was known “a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and “sinners.” ‘(Luke 7:34). A table where unclean, rejected, unforgiven people can come and feel accepted, clean and forgiven by someone who was as real as themselves. How many times as Christians we have been called “a glutton and a drunkard”? I want to be called like that because that means that I am in the midst of real people. I want to be one who entretained sinners just like Jesus did. We are invited to the King’s table because he wants to treat us as part of His family to bring peace, trust, brotherhood and forgivness. In His table we are equal, in His table we are His friends.

“En el este, compartir una comida con alguien es un simbolo de paz, confianza, hermandad y perdon, compartir la mesa es compartir vida. Cuando se hace una invitacion a cenar, lo que en realidad estan diciendo es, “”ven a mi Mikadash me-at, mi santuario en minuatura, a la mesa de mi comedor y celebraremos la experiencia mas bella que la vida nos puede dar: la amistad. “”(Brennan Manning, Un poco de Jesus). Hoy celebramos la Mesa del Senior, la Comunion, la Eucaristia; fue un tiempo ara invitar a todas las personas a la mesa, una invitacion hecha por un hombre que fue conocido como “un gloton y bededor, amigo de los cobradores de impuestos y pecadores”(Lucas7:34). Una mesa en donde los sucios, los rechazados, los imperdonables podian venir y sentirse limpios, aceptos y perdonados por alguien quien era tan real como ellos mismos. Cuantas veces como Cristianos somos llamados “borrachos y glotones”? Yo quiero ser llamado asi porque eso quiere decir que me encuentro en medio de gente real. Quiero ser alguien que entretiene a los pecadores de la misma manera que Jesus lo hizo. Estamos invitados a la mesa del Rey porque El nos quiere tratar como parte de su familia para traernos paz, confianza, hermandad y perdon. En su mesa somos iguales, en su mesa He is our friend.
