Think of the finest meal you have ever had. Recall the excellent food, the drink that perfectly complemented the meal, the company of people you thoroughly enjoyed being with – an evening you wished did not have to end.
Jesus has provided just such a meal, in fact even better, far better than you could imagine, and it will last forever. All the food and wine provided at his expense (Isaiah 25:6).
The banquet will cost you nothing (Isaiah 55:1), you can freely partake simply by coming to Jesus. But what it cost him! He hid his glory in human flesh, as a frail baby in a time when many babies never lived long. He was rejected by those who knew him, and was tortured by those who hated him, then killed without mercy.
He paid a price beyond our comprehension to be able to vanquish death, wipe away every tear from your eyes and enjoy your company forever.
