Isaiah 25:6-9 NIV2010
6 On this mountain the Lord Almighty will prepare
a feast of rich food for all peoples,
a banquet of aged wine—
the best of meats and the finest of wines.
7 On this mountain he will destroy
the shroud that enfolds all peoples,
the sheet that covers all nations;
8 he will swallow up death forever.
The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears
from all faces;
he will remove his people’s disgrace
from all the earth.
The Lord has spoken.
9 In that day they will say,
“Surely this is our God;
we trusted in him, and he saved us.
This is the Lord, we trusted in him;
let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.”
I think of this reading as an invitation to God’s banquet. Our Creator took human form and came to dwell among us; to show us what our lives and this world could be. Sometime in the future, He will come back to set a “feast of rich food for all peoples…” and to establish his Kingdom on this Earth.
Will you RSVP to His invitation?
