A Place at God's Table

Mephibosheth was a man who could not walk because of a childhood accident that crippled both of his feet. King David sought to show kindness to the family of Saul and Jonathan, so his servants found Mephibosheth, whom they brought to the king's table. He would eat there for the rest of his life.

King Jesus is preparing a feast for His bride, which is His Church. All are invited to the feast, yet many are crippled-physically, mentally, or spiritually-by carelessness and unfortunate circumstances. Therefore, they cannot bring themselves to respond to the call of Christ. They need God's servants to draw them, and sometimes to carry them, to the place of grace where they can be healed.

It is my prayer that people will recognize that the King of kings wants to bring us into His banqueting house, where His banner over us is love (Song of Solomon 2:4).

A lot of us are like Mephibosheth, living in a place of defeat and poverty. But God comes to us, and bring us to His table, and there we will feast forever.
