The joy set before us

Reading: Isaiah 25:1-12

Key Verse: Isaiah 25:6-9
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 for ever.
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.’

Does partying come to mind when we think of God? Not normally, but that is the picture of heaven. God’s party – heaven a place of joy, found around the banqueting table of The Lord to which we are all invited. We are able to go to the party because God has dealt with the ultimate party pooper – death.
