This feast will one day be surpassed by a greater feast where our host, Jesus Christ, will recline at the table with millions and millions of saints at the great marriage supper of the Lamb.
Through Jesus broken body, death lost its sting. The Father’s wrath was satisfied. And all those who trust in Christ, like the centurion, will one day be made completely new, free from sickness and death and suffering and pain.
You must not come seeking to trade your church attendance for God’s blessing. You must not seek to trade your generosity. You must not come to God with your grief over your sin in your hands thinking that He will consider that a worthy payment for His love.
