Communion Meditation: Heavenifying the Earth

When we pray the Lord’s Prayer we are expecting the kingdom of heaven to become more and more manifest in our midst. We are praying that the things God loves will become the passion of all the earth. This is also what happens when we come and sit at this table. Everytime we celebrate this meal together we are shaped more and more into the likeness of the kingdom of heaven. We become more heaven-like in our image; we become reflections of the people God has called us to be. But the heavenification of earth doesn’t stop at this table. It is strengthened at this table, but it is only fulfilled when we make the whole world into a table of kings and queens; we do this by living out the gospel in the world; we need to live out these instructions given to us in the Beatitudes. When we live out these characteristics, then will the world know that they belong in the table of the righteous sitting with us drinking and eating and celebrating the joy of the kingdom.
