This table is God’s covenantal promise to be with us. But that promise to be with us, to go with us means that He intends to use us for great good as we trust in Him. Jesus died and rose again in order to make all things new. And He poured out His Spirit on His people who trust in Him, so that He might work through them. This is what God has been doing for the last 2,000 years. He has been working through ordinary men and women and children who trust in Him. Some had long lives, some had short lives. Some of them we know about; most of them we’ve never heard of. Some of them accomplished great things; all them did good things like honor their parents, raise children, love their wives, respect their husbands, work hard all day every day, tell the truth, confess sin, forgive one another.
