Come To The Table

For God has unveiled them and revealed them to us through the [Holy] Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things [diligently], even [sounding and measuring] the [profound] depths of God [the divine counsels and things far beyond human understanding]. For what person knows the thoughts and motives of a man except the man’s spirit within him? So also no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the [Holy] Spirit who is from God, so that we may know and understand the [wonderful] things freely given to us by God. (1 Corinthians 2:10-12 AMP)

So there it is again — that concept of abiding. The Spirit within us is also at the same time within the Godhead [trinity] and calling us to abide in the Godhead, too.

We’re like toddlers… barely tall enough to see over the edge of the kitchen table, but what wonders that glimpse reveals to us! God invites us to this feast of the soul; we understand little of what we see and smell and hear, but we are still invited to taste of this ongoing, everlasting, feast of abiding in one another.

Why? It’s a good question to ask ourselves. We’re certainly not worthy in our present state to partake of heavenly delicacies. But yet our Father has designed in his vast love to give us a foretaste, the Son willingly offering himself as both invitation and payment, to enable us to be at the everlasting spiritual feast, the Spirit indwelling us to present that everlasting call to come and dine… over and over, morning by morning, moment by moment. To see the heavens open and observe the Godhead deeply joyful in each other’s presence, to see the drawing is into that circle. It is too much; it is too big. And yet the call is so enticing! To experience *that* level of knowing and being known! May we all relish the delicacies we are offered this day, the nourishment of our souls at the table of abiding in the Godhead.
