You find yourself living in what might seem like a field of space debris. For the last few generations, mankind has sought to find a locus for meaning outside of the Triune God. Darwin, Freud, and Marx have ushered in a fractured world. It is full of unelected bureaucrats ruling in tyranny and unrighteousness. The blood of the unborn cry out to the Lord from hospital dumpsters. We’re surrounded by a frenzy of sexual confusion & mutilation.
We have found what every godless culture from Babel to the Hitler’s Germany inevitable finds. The center will not hold if the center is not Christ.
As the bread is broken, and the wine is poured, God confronts you with the center of the universe. Here, on this simple table covered with a white tablecloth, in these baskets and tray, is the focal point of existence, the hope of eternity, the meaning of the material world, the answer to the questions, the rhyme & the reason. Christ died for you. Christ shed His blood for you. Christ plunged down into the swamp of death & depravity in order to resurrect mankind in Himself.
If you try to orbit any other focal point you will find, sooner or later, that you are flying off into the coldness of deepest space. But here is the Sun. Here is the warmth of God reconciled to man through Christ, and sealed to us by the Spirit. Here is an eternal weight of glory, with more than enough gravitational pull to hold all things in their place. And you, by grace, are invited to draw near to the center of it all.
The philosophies of men, the schemes of the wicked, the plots of the arrogant will only result in aimless drifting. But in Christ, all things find their proper orbit.
So come in faith and welcome to Jesus Christ…
