It is fitting that in our last reading from over two years of scriptural reflection would contain an invitation. This invite is from two very important persons: “The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!”” From beginning to end, the Bible is God beckoning to us. We are invited, in a few words, to know God and salvation through the Lamb. Moreover we are invited to become the church, the bride of Christ, that invites people to enjoy “the Way, the Truth, and the Life” (John 14:6) Our Lord is an inviting God who also welcomes us to play our role in the story God is weaving. So we too, as readers are encouraged to invite with words like this, “Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.” (Revelation 22:17) As we finish this great journey together we recognize that as we have been invited by God we are also to invite. This is why our church’s mission is what it is. If we are not inviting others to feast on God’s love then we are following a different God than the one of the Bible. For God is a God on mission to rescue, redeem, and make all things new. This is great news for those that need to know God cares about our good as much as we do, and knows much better than we what is good for us. Since God’s love is so good and gracious we are compelled to invite. But that doesn’t stop our hearts from wanting to join John in saying, “Come, Lord Jesus.” (Revelation 22:20) We invite people to feast on God’s love while we also desire Jesus to return soon. THe Bible from front to back wants to instill that we have God’s mission as our central aim, flowing out of having God’s Lamb as our ultimate love. May the grace of Christ dwell with us we find this word of God to constantly invite us to feast on God’s love.
